Characters & Impressions Workshop w/ James III – NYC
Class Description: Walk a mile in someone else’s shoes while wearing your own! This workshop combines improv and comedy writing techniques to develop funny, three-dimensional, true to life characters and impressions. (But I can’t do impressions, you say? THAT’S NOT TRUE!) The first week will be a character intensive where multiple characters will be created. The second week will be an impressions workshop where everyone, even YOU, will do an awesome impression.
Dates: Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017 – 7pm-10pm & Tuesday, October 10th, 2017 – 7pm-10pm
Location: TBA (Probably Ripley Grier)
