You will also fine-tune your skills with the improv games you learned in Level 1. The class ends with a recital for family and friends.

7 Class Meetings, 1 recital, Max. class size 14, Cost: $175 This 7-week class introduces the Theatre 99 method of relationship based scene work and the concept of long form improvisation. You hear it during every class: "Improv scenes are about the relationship." But what is a relationship? This class breaks the relationship between characters into 4 components (point of view, physicality, history & status). Exercises taught during the class help students make offers based on relationship components. This class will also introduce the idea of scenes inspired by other scenes or long form improv. The recital for level 3 will be 100% scenes, no improv games. Every student receives free tickets to any Wednesday and Friday show for the duration of the class. MUST BE 18 YEARS OR OLDER TO TAKE THIS CLASS

Special Class with Greg Tavares: Playing Objective

6 Class Meetings and one class recital. Cost is $175 (MUST PAY IN ADVANCE TO HOLD A SPOT)

I give this note over and over in class -- what your character is feeling is more important than what they are thinking. But, how do you get to those feelings? How do you play those feelings honestly? How do you heighten those feelings in a way that is fun to watch? You play an objective. This is straight up acting technique, folk. Your character wants something and they are going to do stuff to get what they want. That is what I call "playing an objective," and this is what I am doing every time I improvise. It helps me encounter my character's emotional life and see the world through my characters eyes. During this class we will learn how to play with objective and how getting and not getting what we want creates emotional power in the scene.
