Comedic Improv

Register here: https://edgeoforion.com/winter-classes/comedic-improv

Comedic Improv is a style all to itself in the theatrical world and is one of the most popular forms of theatre for both audiences and actors alike. However, it takes practice and concentration to sharpen wits enough to excel at it. Using games like “Scenes from a Hat”, “Press Conference”, “Props” and others brought into the limelight by shows like Whose Line is it, Anyway?- we will explore, play, and laugh while we learn to heighten our comedic timing and quick-thinking skills!

Whether it be Classics from thousands of years ago, Fairy Tales that have been passed down for centuries or Novels and Books of recent times, one thing can be counted on. The Movie version is going to be a LOT different than the original material! In this discussion and critical thinking class, we will take a look at different stories, their original content and the films that were made based on them. Where did they change the most? Why did they change that part? What did you like or not like about the changes? We'll discuss it all as a group and see what discoveries we can make as well. Great for critical thinking, comprehension, and tactful group critiquing techniques

Seussical Jr: Bard Ensemble

"Oh, the thinks you can think" when Dr. Seuss' best-loved characters collide with EDGE’s exuberance and joyful spirit to bring forth an unforgettable musical caper! Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical JR., a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.

Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that's been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!
