Play Notes



We are born great, improvisers; unscripted and spontaneous. We are taught to avoid change, failure and the unknown. And then, we spend much of our adult life trying to regain what we already knew.

Improvisation is at the core of all that we do. This workshop aims at removing the things that get in our way to making improvisation easy. This particular class will reintroduce some of the basic skills as well as look at your specific needs, requests and fears.

WHEN: Wednesday Mar 24, 2021 (6:30 pm – 8:30 PM)

SUGGESTED COST: $25 NOTE: Pay-what-you-can options are available, please contact Morpheus Theatre.

WHERE: Online - ZOOM (Connection details will be provided the day before the workshop)

This workshop is presented at this low cost in the spirit of community theatre.
