This lighthearted introductory workshop is suitable for people with little or no performance experience and is a great way to connect with others whilst having a lot of fun and developing some useful life skills. It will include simple word games, exercises, and improvised dialogue (think ‘Whose Line is it Anyway?’) as well as short scenes created from scratch.

Improv classes of this calibre with an international expert can cost hundreds of dollars. Thanks to Jeff’s generosity and support of The PumpHouse community, we can offer his classes at a “pay what you can afford” rate. Just choose the price that reflects what you can pay.
