Improv-ONLINE & IN-PERSON!

PLEASE READ

During the Covid-19 pandemic The Pack Theater was unable to offer our normal classes which would meet at our theater and class spaces in Hollywood, CA. As conditions have changed and improved, we are now once again offering In-Person classes.

Some classes will still be offered Online. Others will have In-Person options.

The 4 week Online classes will require a $50 deposit to reserve your spot, with the rest due prior to the start of classes. Class size limited to 12.

Note: We require that all students for our In-Person classes be fully vaccinated or be able to provide a negative Covid test taken within 48hrs of the class. In class we request that students remain masked when not on stage. Students can either wear or not wear a mask when performing.

LEVEL 2 – FEARLESS SCENEWORK

No prerequisites for classes!

Instructor: Rich Sohn

Level 2 is about empowering the improvisor. You’ll learn to trust yourself to make strong choices, to embrace the power of listening and to fearlessly stay open to the possibilities of every moment. We’ll take a deep dive into elements of scene-work – character, environment, style, blocking, subtext – and find inspiration and freedom there. We’ll help identify the habits that limit you and open you up to greater possibilities. At the end of these 8 weeks you will be a braver, better, more confident improvisor.

LEVEL 3 – Empathy and Emotional Honesty

No prerequisites at this time!

“The difference between a good scene and a great scene is making the audience give a shit.”

Being funny, witty, or quick is not enough to make you a great improviser. It’s increasingly crucial for the performer to have self-awareness; an understanding and respect for how different life experiences impact what we consider funny. Holding the audience requires us to punch up instead of down, speak truth to power, and allow ourselves to be emotionally vulnerable to earn the laughs we get.

Melding bold improv structure with classical acting and theatre exercises, John will help you develop the tools – and grow in confidence – so that you can become an active listener, better connect with yourself, your partners, and the audience, and experience the power of empathetic viewpoints in your scenes.

LEVEL 4 – Position Play (Online Only)

No prerequisites for classes!

Instructor: Miles Stroth

4 Weeks – $135

In these classes, Miles will cover his Position Play along with his Four Scene Types. If you can recognize what “type” of scene you are in, your “position” in it and the built in dynamics at play, playing that scene becomes relatively easy. And fun!

Listening isn’t an ability, it’s a skill.
