Do More with Less
Radically simplifying your scenework from the top can be a powerful technique for creating great and memorable scenes and characters. Through a progression of exercises that prioritizes an economy of words, we’ll teach players to trust their first choice, and to make that first choice matter. We’ll focus on eye contact, physical proximity, and learning to love and trust silence in your scenework.
Open to all experience levels

Wage House offers improv classes and workshops year round. Our instructors care about giving you actual skills you can use on stage. Our improv philosophy is centered around ‘not improv-ing past your improv’. What’s that mean?…well it means we will teach you to hold on to what you create at the top of your improv scene and you’ll be able to use to for inspiration for the rest. Oh, and, improv is useful in tons of ways besides the theater! People learn improv for public speaking, communication skills, building teamwork, and just for Fun! Basically you should take an improv class. Improv is growing in Rhode Island and Wage House is excited to be apart of your improv experience. Our theater is located in Pawtucket, which is very close to Providence and the East-side! Check back often to see what’s new!!
