C.O.R.E. Improv Workout with Tim Paul

(C)haracter, (O)bjective, (R)elationship & (E)nvironment – these elements provide you with the framework to knock your scene out of the park. This workshop will pinpoint & tackle specific weaknesses & bad habits that surface in your scene work. Then you’ll move through specific challenges in later scenes that are geared towards your specific area of need. This class is scenic bootcamp – there’s no point focusing on the game of the scene, if there’s no real scene to begin with.

Date: April 21-10:00am-1:00pm

Cost: $50
