Comedy Improv Class – Beginners

  • Jul 24, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hi, I’m Laurie Newkirk and I have been asked to teach improv classes.  

I have taught improv classes including for organizations such as Tauck Tours and Toastmasters. Directed an improv troupe for several years that performed all over the area including several performances at Caroline’s on Broadway and The Red Room in Philadelphia. I have also enjoyed performing as part of the improv troupe ‘Funny Side Up’. In addition, I have a Directing Certificate from Yale University, am the Artistic Director of the Acting Company of Greenwich and have directed plays Off-Broadway. 

The classes will be based on Short-Form improv. (For those of you new to improv think of the TV show “Whose Line is it Anyway?”)

The class will consist of warm-ups, improv exercises and scenes. Come have fun learning, laughing and enjoying making others laugh! 

The Fee for the class is $10.

Improv is great for boosting confidence, reducing stress, strengthening quick thinking and meeting new people.

No prior improv experience needed, experienced improvers are welcome.

Time: 7pm-9pm

First Congregational Church of Greenwich

108 Sound Beach Avenue

Old Greenwich, CT 06870

Class will be held in the Lounge on the main floor. Look for signs.

    Message from Laurie:

    Just a few quick things about our impending fun class tonight:

    The class as gotten a lot of interest and has a waiting list so if you are not going to be able to attend tonight please change your RSVP so that others may come.

    To answer a question wefve been getting, unfortunately we can't take credit cards so if you could bring cash to pay the $10 class fee that would be appreciated.

    Also, we have upgraded to a larger space in the Church and instead of being in the lounge we will be in the Daniel Center down the stairs. There will be signs.

    Looking forward to a great class tonight!

    - Laurie
