BurkTech Players Improv Workshop

The BurkTech Players will host two Improvisation workshops on October 22 at the Burkhart Center. Improvisation, or improv, is a form of live theatre in which the plot, characters, and dialogue of a game, scene, or story are made up in the moment. This style of theatre helps participants learn creative ways of managing unexpected situations while building problem solving skills using interactive methods. Improv is spontaneous, entertaining, and can be a great source of fun.

A class for ages 12-15 will meet from 10 a.m. – noon, and a class for ages 16 and up will meet from 1 p.m.-3 p.m. Please register by using the links below:

If you have any questions, please contact Winter Davis at winter.davis@ttu.edu.
