Improvise Like A Screenwriter

It has been said that there are only 7 basic plots that can ever be told. If that is the case, then why do we keep making, and telling, stories? Whether writing for Television or the Silver Screen, Screenwriters have a handful of tricks they can use to quickly engage their quickly audience, manipulate their emotions, and tell a great story while doing so. This workshop takes elements from the world of Screenwriting and applies them to Improv. We’ll learn about false goals, character flaws, and crossing a threshold. We’ll practice planting and foreshadowing, getting the most out of our dialogue, and how to make the audience love, or hate, our characters. Most importantly, we’ll make the audience care about what is happening to our improvised characters and their relationships to each other, places, and things, on stage.
