This two hour introductory workshop gives cautious students the chance to “try before you buy”, by sampling some of the fun things you'll do in an 8 week improv course at PHIT. You'll learn the core improv concept of "agreement", how to create characters from nothing, and you'll dip your toes into improvised scenework.
This class is perfect for people of all experience levels. You do not need to have prior experience or be an actor / comedian. PHIT has students from all walks of life and all ages. We have people that are looking to make a go of improvising, but we have also had students that were just looking to meet new people, improv public speaking confidence, try something new, or simply have fun for two hours. There is no commitment here to register for a full class, only come in ready to have a good time.
WHAT STUDENTS SAY ABOUT MOLLY
"Molly is incredible! She has a great ability to critique and make suggestions without making anyone feel inadequate or lacking ability." -- "I loved Molly's enthusiasm for comedy. Her energy kept me going and she was always great at sandwiching compliments with criticism so I never felt discouraged from playing and being vulnerable." -- "The only negative thing about Molly's class was that it had to eventually come to an end!"
