Coached by Hilary Bluestein-Lyons
Over a period of eight, virtual, 90-minute rehearsals, the group will learn a variety of improv games, culminating in two live, virtual performances in the Keybank Rochester Fringe Festival. Teens will explore the basic elements of comedy improv such as building relationships, character development, listening and agreeing, within the framework of short-form improv, in the style of the popular TV show “Whose Line is it Anyway.” Oh yeah, and they’re going to have a ton of FUN!
