“You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone’s soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows that they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift.”
― Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus
Scripted theatre takes years to write and alter to create a production. Improvised theatre has no script, there are multiple perspectives that work together without a script to tell a story that will never be told again. Only those special few who witness the story in all it’s glory.
March’s Improv Skills Drop-In improv classes are focused on helping you tell an unscripted story with your scene partners. Classes apply the techniques of ‘Give and Take’, listening, and teamwork.
WHERE: HiFi COOP, Ward Warehouse, 1050 Ala Moana Blvd, STE 2580 Honolulu, Hawaii 96813
