Event Details

8 WEEKS | Mondays, June 7 – July 26, 2021 | 7pm – 10pm

Improvisation is a great way to learn some of the essential tools that lead to effective scene work. From working spontaneously, students will learn how to make confident choices and work “in the moment”. Taking place on the Playhouse stage, and with Zoom on the theater’s screen, students will keep an observation notebook which will provide the material to be improvised. It’s a class ultimately to add more tools to the actor’s process, and to add more freedom and yes, fun, in approaching the role. While this is not a writing class, writers can have actors improv from situations in their work. Ultimately, it’s about freedom, personal exploration, and throwing caution and fear away as the actor becomes more versatile and effective.

Taught by award winning actor, Jeffrey Tambor, who has been captivating audiences for nearly four decades in both comic and dramatic projects, in addition to hosting the popular podcast Acting Shmacting, this class is accessible to all experience levels.

Jeffrey Tambor is an Emmy and Golden Globe award winning actor. He has taught classes on both coasts and workshops at SXSW for many years. In addition to his sought after Zoom classes, he hosts the “Acting Schmacting” podcast on PodBean. He has interviewed countless legends, including Ron Howard, Anjelica Huston, Dick Cavett and many more!
