Hello there person reading this!
We've all been there on meetup - there's a new event that looks a bit out of our comfort zone, so we read the description, go 'that's a bit scary' or 'I'm not sure that's for me' - and leave it there.
Or maybe we sign up, but then let 'any excuse' mean we don't actually go? It's raining, I'm tired, I need to conserve my energy for buying an advent calandar tomorrow?
But why not actually TRY it?
This is a class for all levels - most of us are beginners, but some have more experience and everyone is welcome. It consists of games and scenes all improvised by the people that come along.
Sometimes it ends up a bit mad but other times you can be surprised by the theatre that comes out of nowhere. We start off every class with warm ups and progress depending upon how we all feel, and mostly just have a laugh with a few drinks.
There is no pressure to perform first time, so if you want to just watch, see what we are about and how the classes run that's fine too.
At the moment we have rotating hosts, this week is Patrick. There are also some fun games we are trying out before using them at the Christmas Party next week. And afterwards some people also stay for a drink.
The classes run every MONDAY 7-9pm, at The St. James Wine Vaults (usually upstairs, but sometimes downstairs to keep you on your toes!).
There are a number of people who attend through Facebook rather than Meetup, so even if the numbers signed up on Meetup look low the class will still definitely be on, and we normally have around 7-12 people attending.
There is also plentiful free street parking on nearby Julian Road and Weston Road, or in the park.
Please note there is a voluntary £2 donation towards room costs, though your first time is FREE!
