Why Take Improv Classes?

Why should you take improv classes?

Thousands of students have passed through Unexpected Productions' improv classes. Some are looking to pursue the art of Improvisational Theatre. Some are looking to improve their public presentation or team skills. Some are looking to overcome shyness, to meet others, or simply to have fun and laugh with a group of fun, easy-going people.

Whatever the reason, Unexpected Productions' teachers work hard to teach the basics of improv, which are not only useful to improvisers, but to anybody wanting to work with others, as a member of a team, as an effective communicator, as a good listener, or simply as a friend!

With 25 years experience, Unexpected Productions' teachers have had thousands of success stories, from groups of friends to stand-up-comedians, from successful improvisers to Hollywood Stars, and from local-business owners to Vice Presidents of Fortune 500 companies!

Our quarterly classes are one of the best values in town for acting / improv classes.  All quarterly classes are eight weeks long.
