Unexpected Productions Improv School
The Largest Improv School in the Northwest!
What's New?
Learn Chicago-style solo performance, and hone your own comedic voice in an inspiring and supportive group setting. With a focus on developing characters and the 5 most effective solo scene formats, we will start with solo improv, then build a solo performance form as a team, in a one-act group style. Although solo work may sound intimidating, this step-by-step approach makes it feel easy and accessible. Great for improvisers ready to take risks, or interested in generating material for a one-man show. A Uconn theater grad, Moog has focused almost exclusively on teaching, directing and performing comedy for the past 12 years, studying far and wide: from LA (The Groundlings), Seattle (Unexpected Productions and Wing-It), to comedy Mecca itself, Chicago, where she has trained and performed at: Second City Training Center, iO, Annoyance, Comedysportz Chicago, OneGroupMind, and pH Productions. Most recently, she's directed new improv forms at Annoyance, taught solo performance at the college level with the National Theater Institute, and directed Shakespeare in the Park with the Colonial Theater. Moog has a cute dog and mermaid hair even when she's not in the water. $85 - Class is Saturday April 11, 2015 from 12:00nn to 5:30pm 5 Hours (plus 30 minute break). 12 Students max.
