“The only characters I ever don’t like are ones that leave no impression on me. And I don’t write characters that leave no impression on me.”
― Lauren DeStefano
Strong characters are the foundation of improv scenes. Creating a character with a purpose and committing to it is essential for all types of performance: improv, scripted, acting, stand-up, etc. Commitment to your on-stage persona is a crucial tool for managing your audience’s perception of you.
November’s Improv Skills Drop-In classes are focused on building your character and commitment skills to be a more dynamic performer. Topics to be covered include: creation, commitment, physicality and emotion.

Aaron is a real foodie and loves ‘P’ Foods: pancakes, potatoes, and probably pickles. Also, puppets. But, I don’t think he eats those.
