Level 1: Intro to Play and Improv Fundamentals
with Jaclyn Cosgrove & Cristela Carrizales
Saturdays, 1-3 PM 

Learn the fundamentals for the first time or practice fundamentals as a refresher. Want to be more creative and expressive or learn to generate ideas on the spot? This class is for you. Level 1 introduces you to improv skills in an open, supportive class structure. You'll learn a mixture of exciting Whose Line Is It Anyway? short-form games, group games, and OKC Improv original games! No prerequisites.


Level 2: Playing with Premise and Relationship with Kellen Hodgeson
Saturdays, 1-3 PM

Apply what you've learned in Level 1 to begin mastering the fundamentals of long-form improv, scene work. Students will demystify what makes a scene comedic: creating and playing comedic premises and games, creating characters with distinct points of view, playing relationships between characters, and playing the platforms out in scenes. Students will learn how to initiate scenes strongly, identify what makes the scene funny, play characters with strong points of view, identifiable relationships, and create and identify strong base realities. (Needed: Level 1)

Level 3: Playing with Patterns with Ben Davis
Saturdays, 3-5 PM

Apply what you've learned in Level 1 and 2 to begin mastering long-form improv. This class is heavy on exercises in the fundamental structural components of long-form. Students will learn to mine for audience suggestions to create show ideas, find the beats of when and how to edit,  speak monologues, heighten and reincorporate material as callbacks. You'll emerge from Level 3 with the tools and skills necessary to sustain longer pieces containing recurring themes, rich characters, and plenty of surprise and delight. (Needed: Level 1 & 2)
