Event Details

Level: Experienced

Jazz up your musical improv and put a little more flair into your performance with a romp through various musical theatre styles.

Taking influences from poignant French chansons, sizzling showbiz and more modern musical theatre, we’ll improvise songs from the heartfelt to the bawdy, from tear-jerkers to rocking out. This is an opportunity to expand your range as you take to the stage in your own living room, embrace your inner show-person and let rip.

This course includes:

playing with different genres

singing with soul, humour, character and heart

selling your performance with style

Min. participants 6, max. 12.

This Experienced course runs Thursdays 10th June- 15th July, 5 – 7.00 pm BST.

Experienced (18 months+) A class for skillful players, especially those who have finished improv training programmes at their school and are looking to widen their horizons. These classes will make the assumption that you are comfortable performing longform improvisation and will push you.
