One of my favorite things about improv is playing anyone, men, women, children, a cactus and getting lost in their world! In this class we’ll work on creating character. We’ll find their thoughts, needs and emotional base. We’ll learn how to play anybody and everybody needed in a scene or story. Using our imaginations and a variety of outside prompts we’ll explore the world of people.


  • To physically change our posture, voice and tempo
  • To find the emotional base of the character
  • To create character based on the story/scene
  • To sustain the character by finding the “seed”
  • To play big characters realistically

In this class, we’ll learn:

  • To use our imagination and prompts to quickly build character
  • To explore emotions to see what they bring to a story
  • To embrace both good and evil characters to help tell the story
