Workshop and Show with Brooke Cameron!

Our very own Brooke Cameron is back from the west coast, and she wants to share some stuff she's been working on with YOU! Interested in expanding your improvised comedy into improvised theatre by focusing on honest and authentic scene work? Brooke will be offering a 3-hour, one time only intensive workshop that concentrates on creating touching moments on stage that go beyond gags and goofiness. Fresh from a series of Paper Street Theatre performances (Improv for Closers, Lethal Christmas, A Handmade Tale), Brooke will lead you through the important steps of creating sincere characters, moments and stories that come from the heart through physicality, teamwork and strong stage presence. Whether you're looking to build grounded scenes, improve your offers and listening skills or start dabbling in solo improv, this workshop will have a serious impact on your improvised performances across the board.
