Education/Lectures

Playhouse on Park, 244 Park Rd, West Hartford, CT , 06119

Calling all improv fanatics and amateurs alike! It’s time to sharpen your quick wit, to focus on your inner ham that makes appearances at parties and get-togethers. Beginning on April 27, Playhouse on Park is excited to offer an Adult Intermediate Improvisation class led by returning instructor Claire Zick.

Intermediate Improvisation continues work on the fundamental principles of improvisation while introducing short-form improv games. The focus will include concepts such as status, tilt and re-incorporation, using the environment and non-linear narrative.
