In improv comedy the audience is the biggest uncontrollable factor a performer faces. Join Anna Bethel to explore the skill of "reading a room" in order to harness the admiration of the audience. Students will work together in exercises to improve spontaneous mental recall and learn how to perform and moderate short-form improv games. The result of quick thinking and reacting will give a performer the confidence to face any crowd. Prerequisite: Level 1 and 2 or permission from instructor and principal.
