MadCAP Improv is a wild, fast-paced improvisation games workshop for young adults in grades 6-12! Join us monthly for a two-hour workshop where students will learn to trust themselves and others while embracing spontaneity and exploring the essential elements of telling the greatest unknown story. Students will explore the basic tenets of improvisation from “Yes, And” to “giving gifts” to “Name/Location/Action.” This foundational knowledge will prepare students for future forays into the world of improvisation and help them develop confidence in the power of their voice and imagination. We also focus on laughter, fun, and genuine social connection. As we often tell the students, a key element of improvisation is making soul-connecting eye contact. We do that and more, all while playing ridiculous games and exercises that create amazing stories. If your student is interested, the only thing they must do is say “Yes, And!”

*Tickets are $5.00 at the door (CASH ONLY) and concessions available.
