Level 1 – Improv Basics

Tuesdays starting May 29th

Here is where it all starts! This 8 week class is designed to teach you the core concepts of improv including agreement, pattern and basic scene work. Students will learn how to work from the top of their intelligence to make choices that will become the building blocks of great scenes. Within a highly supportive and positive environment, students will explore and practice the core skills of improvisation. At Wage House, we strongly believe anyone can improvise, so this class is for everyone! Learn the fundamentals of improv and practice getting up on stage. Improv is great for anyone wanting to be a better performer, have more communication tools, work on public speaking, or just have fun! At the end of the class you and your classmates will perform as a team in your very own show.
This course runs for 8 weeks, and each class is 3 hours long.

I'm Afraid

8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Wage House proudly presents  I’m Afraid. One man’s journey through terror and anxiety, but it’s funny. 
Local writer and performer Dave Rabinow (Improv Jones, Empire Revue, Vox Magna) has thoughtfully catalogued many of his own personal fears and wants to share them with you. I’m Afraid is an hour-long comedy journey into the heart of one man’s anxiety; But wait, there’s more! You – the audience – determine the shape and content of the show by sharing a teensy-tiny bit of your own fear in our warm, safe Wage House environment surrounded by (strictly metaphorical) emotional support animals. Every show is different! Part solo show, part communal experience, I’m Afraid brings performer and audience together in the place where we are most vulnerable and most human.
