Improvisation Classes

As the home of The Court Jesters, the improvisational masterminds behind Scared Scriptless we love to share the techniques of improvisation. All our classes are taught by Court Jesters and are geared towards introducing participants to the skills and joys of improvisation. Our classes run in line with the school terms, the next term of classes will start during the first week of May and registrations will be open early April. 

"We were so lucky that we had The Court Theatre as a base. The best way to learn your craft is to do it. It totally formed me. I moved on from improv to stand up but it made me unafraid of what could happen on stage."

Music Rhythm and Rhyme!

Tuesday 7:15pm - 9:15pm

Musical improv can be one of the more impressive - and most intimidating - skills in an improviser's toolbox. Over eight weeks, Jeff will break down tricks and tips for rhyming, rapping, singing and making it look (and sound) like you know what you're doing. Actual musical talent not required.
In general, it is only open to people who have done both Spontaneity courses or have previous Improv experience. Please note this class is for ages 18+.
