Improv! A playful space where you are never alone on stage, nor need to be funny – for improv is about working together, to spontaneously make stories, scenes and sketches. Attend this workshop and you will acquire confidence in bounds, accelerate your thinking, build your listening ability and make new friends! Best for beginners, super for social up skilling and job seeking.

Tom Scudamore is an improv facilitator with a Master’s in Applied Theatre from the Central School of Speech and Drama. Tom has lectured at the University of Sydney, practised at the Second City in Chicago and tutored countless young people and adults in performance and writing. He believes theatre art forms like improv ask us to be vulnerable and to participate is to grow.

This class’s exercises promote self-esteem, expression, accelerated thinking and collaboration. Best for beginners.

This class asks participants to respond to stimulus cards and devise sketches sometimes in pairs, other times in groups. This also involves reflection on how we can advance our ideas. Experienced improvisers and actors welcome.

For creatives, whether an experienced improviser, actor, drama student or stand-up, if you enjoy devising and responding to ideas, this session’s for you! Sketch comedy is actually not hard: find a game for a scene and know how to escalate or explore it? You’re flying! Mastered by the likes of Monty Python and Key & Peele, this medium develops hilarious characters and situations and that is what you will do several times here. You will leave with tales to tell and scripts to write!
