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."
New Zealand Comedian Cal Wilson
