LITFOF - Improv Warmup and Show!
Performing improv seems scary. No worries, you don't have to. Just coming to watch an improv show seems scary. No worries, we'll do a fun warm-up to get us laughing together. 7pm: We'll play some simple group games! It's not about being funny or good at it, it's just about trying it and seeing that it can be fun instead of scary. 8pm: A fun improv show! Just sit back and enjoy the laughs. The show has three parts: 1: Anyone who wants to, can play some improv games with seasoned veterans. 2: We'll have a fun improv team create comedy on the spot (aka improv!). 3: A guest speaker will tell wonderful, vulnerable stories of anxiety, and an amazing group of improvisers will use those stories to inspire hilarious scenes. It's pay what you can, with moneys going to charity. This month's charity is Progress Place. It's always super fun! And always super supportive! Hope you can make it. heart emoji

What we're about

Improv was a huge part of me getting over my anxiety. Now I'm taking my years of learning about self-help and anxiety, and putting it together with my years of training and teaching improv, to create classes designed to help people with their anxiety in a fun and playful way. Wow that was a long sentence.

In this Meetup group, I’ll try my best to find fun ways to introduce you to improv. Right now there's a show, workshops, drop-in classes, full classes, talks, and any events that come up based around play.

Improv is all about group play, meeting new people (who are here for a shared reason), getting comfortable with each other, and building trust and support in an environment where we can grow even more.

From my experience, just knowing that everyone is here for the same reason, builds a tremendous sense of community and support (without judgement). And knowing that someone overcame anxiety, opens the door to the possibility that you’re not “stuck this way” for life.

Welcome, and thanks for being part of the group.

Looking forward to us playing together.
