Make Your 1st Impro Show

with Jim Fishwick
In this one-off class, make the leap from improvising in other people's shows to inventing and developing a show of your own!
You'll explore ways of finding inspiration, and be guided through the process of turning that into a whole show. You'll come away with a sapling of a show idea, ready for you to grow into a mighty tree.
This course is aimed at people with some familiarity with improvisation techniques and little to no experience making shows, but is open to all experience levels.
“I took this class based on my appreciation for Jim Fishwick’s formats and thoughtful approach to improv. Jim is a great and supportive teacher, with considered and helpful feedback and clear and practical ideas. [...] This course was both practical and interesting and will stay with me for a long time and certainly help in my work as an improviser, director and producer of shows. Thanks Jim!”
Jim’s class not only taught me the theories of theatre production – turning ideas into performances, using your audience, stagecraft – but it gave me the tools to begin my own production, the courage to keep going, and the wisdom to change what needed changing. Thanks, Jim!”
