Service Description

AUDITIONS FOR CONSERVATORY ARE JANUARY 7TH, 2023. SEE MONTHLY CALENDAR UNDER "SHOWS" TAB TO RSVP. Skip Day: April 5th (PASSOVER) Tennessee Williams is 20-week conservatory-level course and an exciting genre for improvisers! It is a theatre style set in the American South during the 1950s, and at Impro School, it requires the improviser to become a student of theatre and, to an extent, of American history. In this workshop, improvisers not only study the plays of Tennessee Williams, but also the writings of those who influenced Williams, and the cultural and historical events that occurred in his lifetime. This genre requires skilled acting, strong objectives, and theatrical language. The Impro Conservatory is for those who want to improvise long narratives in a more structured approach. It creates a unique experience that gives students an opportunity to tell a new story each night. The Conservatory is a home for those who love this style of storytelling and want to immerse themselves in it. The financial commitment is by the month, but to support the ensemble atmosphere, students should plan on sticking around the full 5 months. After each genre, the workshops take a month off (June and December), allowing new students to join, pending class size. Improvisers are asked to dive into the Williams’s character archetypes like the outsider, the fragile, the artist, etc. Students learn how to make powerful theatrical staging and blocking choices with entrances and exits, pulling focus, split screen, direct address, and dynamic physical relationships. In this theatre style, improvisers tell stories using longer scenes, limited locations, and an ensemble story structure as opposed to the leading protagonist structure of RomCom.
