Successful improvisation stems from having a supportive environment that allows students to trust their fellow improvisers. That support and trust allows players to take greater risks, gain confidence in their choices, themselves, and their fellow students. This, in turn, leads students to surrender to the fun of play and discovery. Contact Us or call the Box Office (630) 585-0300 to register for classes.
