Dreamcatcher Repertory Theatre, professional Theatre in Residence at the Oakes Center in Summit, will offer a winter Improv class for adults and teens this winter, Saturdays from January 30 – February 27.

Improv expert Lulu French (Maplewood) will teach a 5-week Improv Comedy for Teens and Adults class, running from January 30 – February 27 on Saturdays from 11:00-1:00 pm. The class delves deep into the craft of improv with more complex games as the weeks progress. This class is great for all levels of improvisers, and also for actors who want to add another dimension to their skills. Improv is a valuable skill for countless situations such as public speaking, auditions and job interviews as well. Lulu French has long performed with and taught for Gotham City Improv in New York City, and has taught improv to theatre students at the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU, among many other places.

TUITION: The cost for this class is $175.
