This workshop is the next level in our performing series to prepare improvisers for performance.  This unique Johnstonian format, the ever-challenging and ever-entertaining Theatresports, helps you learn and practice multiple skills to provide a confident, fun, and entertaining performance.  

In this class, we’ll develop ensemble, learning how best to interact with teammates, the opposing team, the judges, and the audience.

We’ll also explore the logistics of learning, preparing, and playing Theatresports: creating team themes/personas, issuing challenges, learning new performance games, and adapting on the fly for the utmost variety  and interesting shape of show.
