Play Hard with Stacey Hallal

Saturday, July 2, 2016, 1PM - 4PM : $65

When we are scared, something in our brains tells us to shut down, pull in and play it safe. On stage, these survival instincts are the opposite of what will save us, yet we see scene after scene of improvisers standing around and talking about nothing. In this workshop, you will learn how to open up, project out and attack each scene with energy, emotion and joy.
*Prerequisite - Completion of IMPROV 301 or higher.
