Improv 101!

The future of improv is looking strong!

Chicago Improv Productions is excited to promote improv at the Illinois High School Theater Festival this weekend.  Young thespians have been stopping by our both all day to share their enthusiasm for improvisation and their curiosity about its possibilities!  Even those students who don’t consider themselves improvisors get excited talking about it.

For students eager to explore spontaneous performance, CIP’s own Richard Haschemeyer presented an IMPROV 101 workshop!  Students fearlessly dove into the work!  They collaborated instantly to build sophisticated stage pictures, engaging stories and wonderfully diverse characters!

After the festival we hope to bring workshops like this one directly to schools throughout the state!
