Winding Rivers Arts and Performance Society invites you to a two-day exciting and fun theatre Improv Workshop experience!
Did you love our last production and say to yourself… ‘oh, I so want to do that’… well, you can – and here’s your chance to learn some of the basics of theatre, comedy and improvising. Come one, come all. Don’t be shy! The best thing is that it’s free! …and open to all ages!
Local Director/Actress Mavourneen Varcoe-Ryan and Stand Up Comedian Tracey Knihnitski will facilitate a Theatre Improv and Stand Up Comedy two-day Workshop on Jan. 12 and 13 at the Ashcroft high school library and four weekly performance nights in the months of January and February.
On Saturday, Jan. 12 an Improv workshop is offered and on Sunday; Stand-up Comedy. The workshops both run from 10am – 3pm with a light lunch provided. All Improv workshops are free and open to all ages.
Do you know what’s weird about Stand-Up Comedy? Most of us are afraid to look stupid! Stand Up Comedians do it on purpose to get a laugh!
If you imitate your family members behind their backs, make people laugh when you’re mad, and/or have all kinds of opinions about the absurdities of the world, you might have what it takes to do Stand Up Comedy!
In addition, for those of you who love physical comedy and shows like “Whose Line Is It Anyways”, feel free to join us for Theatre Improv. We’ll get creative, have some laughs and bounce some scenes around thru improvisation. No experience necessary! Imaginations welcome!
The subsequent Drop in Improv and Comedy nights (and possibly your first ‘gig’) will take place on Wednesdays throughout January and February. Join us on Jan. 16, 30, Feb. 6 and 20 from 7–9pm at Shelley’s Place (301 3 St. – Ashcroft). Goodies and tea/coffee for sale.
Check for posters around town for exact workshop details. For more info and to register phone (250) 453 9100 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
