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.

"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."

Advanced Improv - Status and Storytelling

Thursday 7pm -9pm

Our advanced Improv class where participants will focus on specialist skills and continue exploring the tricks and techniques involved in successful improvisation.
This Term with a focus on status and storytelling -Using relationships between characters to drive a story.
Great improv isn't about the ideas one performer has but about connections, attitudes and relationships between characters. Learn how to find (and create) those bonds and then use them to propel your scene's narrative forward into exciting new territory. These workshops will primarily focus on status transactions and how to use them to change characters' relationships - as well as the characters themselves.

In general, it is only open to people who have done a Spontaneity course or have previous Improv experience. Please note this class is for ages 18+.
