Stagecrafters Offers Improv Classes

homeschool-theater Stagecrafters Theatre in Royal Oak offers the “1000 Hats – Youth Improvisation Program”

For homeschoolers, to schedule an improv workshop during the day or after school–contact Lesley Braden-Phillips at 248-541-1348.

1000 Hats is a metaphor for the many characters, roles and personalities a student of improvisation plays. One moment you’re a baker challenged with making a dozen cookies on the moon without an oven and the next you’re a policeman who sings songs to offenders rather than making arrests. It’s all about thinking quickly on your feet!

Through games, activities and performances, improvisers explore and assume many roles and have the opportunity to (figuratively) wear many hats.
