What happens when your improv goes to the moon? Our characters don’t know that they’re in an improv scene – their world is their world, no matter how ridiculous. This workshop deals with making and taking wacky offers, and using the power of “yes-and” to make sense of even the craziest situations. It’s easy to give up on scenes that seem to go off the rails, but in this workshop, students will learn how to take silly seriously.
