Get Your Short Form On! (Free Improv Workshops at E49)

Friday, Dec. 5th, 7-8pm

2830 G. Street, Suite 210, Sacramento, CA 95816

Do you dig 'Who's Line Is It Anyway?' Have you ever been to an improv show? Have you ever sung, walked your dog or done improv in the shower? Have you found the meaning of life in your inbox and accidently flagged it as junk mail?


If not, then come on out for two FREE (as in -- you pay nothing) Short Form Improv Workshops at Suite 210 in Sacramento! Short form improv is a free-wheeling, collaborative artform that encourages confidence, teamwork and bold choices as participants build scene ideas from scratch.


Through mind-bending team games, scrumptious warm-ups and good old fashioned basics like 'Freeze Tag,' 'Countdown' and 'Four Square,' this workshop will provide a buffet of skills and techniques to anyone who has ever wanted to try out improv comedy.


Open to all who are interested! Beginners welcome! No prior improv experience required!!


Please RSVP with your interest / intent to Curtis.miller@biola.edu
