Public Workshops: Beginning March 2013
Have you ever wanted to do what The Utility Players do? We love what we do, and we would bet that you'd love it, too. It's not hard, and anyone can learn. Improv is all about learning a few basic set of rules, and then practice, practice, practice! The following improv workshop series consists of 4 separate workshops, which can be taken separately but are recommended as a package for maximum growth. The cost is $25/workshop (or $100 for the whole package). The workshops are perfect for anyone wanting to learn a new skill that can be effective in elevating public speaking skills, communication, teamwork, management, etc, or for any aspiring improv comedians. Although the workshops are in no way mandatory for those wishing to audition in February 2012, we highly recommend that you take them, as we base our casting off of a mixture of natural talent, ability to learn, attitude, and group chemistry.
In preparation for our upcoming audition schedule, The Utility Players are hosting a series of 4 workshops, INTRODUCTION TO UTILITY PLAYERIAN COMEDY:
