PLEASE NOTE: You must pay in advance to hold a spot in the class. This class is open to all levels of experience, adults only (19 years old or older).

This class breaks the relationship between characters into 4 components (point of view, physicality, history & status). Exercises taught during the class help students make offers based on relationship components. The recital for level 3 will be 100% scenes, no improv games. Every student receives one free ticket to any Wednesday and Friday show at the beginning of each class. MUST BE 18 YEARS OR OLDER TO TAKE THIS CLASS

Sketch Writing with Kevin McDonald

Full day workshop and evening performance with Kevin McDonald from The Kids in the Hall. Cost is $180

Saturday, May 6 (10:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.) Kevin will start the day by talking about the basics of sketch comedy and comedy writing. He will then teach the students The Kids in the Hall method of writing comedy sketch through improv. You'll follow that by playing warm up games that lead you into thinking naturally about writing and performing at the same time. The class will then split into groups and each group will improvise a scene. After each scene, you will talk about them, give notes and figure out how the scenes could develop into a whole sketch. Then when all the improvised scenes are done, each group and Kevin, work all day to turn every scene that was improvised, into a fully developed comedy sketch. By the end of the day, the class will have 4 to 7 completely new sketches. Kevin will probably also bore the students with Kids in the Hall anecdotes throughout the day. He apologizes beforehand for that. There is no prerequisite improv experience required, and all that's needed is pen, paper and a willingness to learn. Following the workshop, the students will perform their own sketches that night as part of a special Kevin McDonald performance at 10pm. You must be at least 18 years old to take this workshop.
