Improv Workshop March 11, 2015

Class continued its slow increase to 27 people tonight, with one who is brand new to the workshop.

Our games tonight: Character Intro, What Are You Doing?, Tag Out Story, Animal Transform, Irish Drinking Song, and 3 Line Drill.


Improv Show Review: March 7, 2014

Another great show with an audience of 17 people. Our players were (back row) Ryan, Andrew, Alan, Jonathan, Brian, (front row) Heather, Li-At, and Jasmin.

We got in 17 scenes, 8 of which were open scenes. We ended with Mortgage in London, so less than half of our show is made up of short form games!

I have two lines written down in my notes:

“Banks – they’re fun to rob!”

“It’s my turn to do the dishes!” said in an enthusiastic voice.


Improv Workshop March 4, 2015

Tonight’s class had 26 people, including some faces we haven’t seen in awhile. No brand new players, but the return of a few for their second class.

Some pretty basic warm ups, starting with Character Intro, then on the Whoosh, Bang, Pow, and One Word Story. Then came Counting Words, Party Quirks, and Beasty Rap.

The header image is from one of the Beasty Rap scenes, and shows Mark, Cora, Brian, Debbie, Steven, and Eric.

Improv Workshop February 25, 2015

We took some time from tonight’s class to remember Ben Woolf. A previous post gave some of Ben’s history with the Santa Barbara Workshop, and I wanted to give those who knew him a chance to say a few words. This is the first time we’ve had a memorial for anyone who attended class, and I think it was an appropriate tribute.

I don’t have many pictures from this night since I didn’t bring out the camera until the end. They’re all from the 185 scenes.

There were 25 people in tonight’s class, none of them brand new. We warmed up with Character Intro and One Word Story. Our short form games were 5 Letter Word and Switch Dubbing. We did the Irish Drinking Song and ended with 185.
