This is an active, practical session designed to give you as many ideas as possible using Improv. et al to develop a successful, working script. Using improvisation to develop a working script to accommodate all students who are interested in doing a performance. Whether they want to act or play a supporting role in design, technical, costume, make-up involving them from the very beginning can produce highly creative results. The sooner they take ownership the better the team and the production. Finding good scripts is always a challenge so why not have them write their own ? Using ideas from this session you may find that the task to do your own script is not as daunting as you initially thought. The benefits of this approach are many - not the least of which is the pride and joy they have creating their own unique presentation and the feeling of self-worth they receive from doing it.
