Dreamcatcher Offers Open Level Improv Class For Adults and Teens

Dreamcatcher Offers Open Level Improv Class For Adults and Teens(SUMMIT, NJ) -- Dreamcatcher Repertory Theatre, professional Theatre in Residence at the Oakes Center in Summit, will offer an Open Level Improv class for adults and teens beginning September 30. Improv expert Lulu French (Maplewood) will teach the six-week Improv Comedy for Teens and Adults class.

Open to both students who have taken Lulu’s Level 1 class and to beginners, the class runs from September 30 through November 4 on Saturdays from 12:00 – 2:00 pm at the Oakes Center, 120 Morris Avenue in Summit.  Enrollment is also open for Winter, Spring and Summer sessions.

These classes delve deep into the craft of improv with more complex games as the weeks progress. The Improv Class is great for new improvisers, and also for actors who want to add another dimension to their skills. For those who come with a foundation of improv skills, Lulu will introduce games that require keeping many balls in the air at once. The environment is supportive and responsive to the needs of students with any level of experience.

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. The cost for the class (six weeks) is $210.

At Oakes, parking is available in the lot behind the theatre on Ashwood Avenue and at the Summit Recreation Center on Morris Avenue.  The facility is wheelchair accessible.  To register for the class or for information on any of Dreamcatcher Repertory Theatre's programs, please visit www.dreamcatcherrep.org or contact Dreamcatcher Repertory Theatre at The Oakes Center, 120 Morris Avenue, Summit, NJ 07901, 908-514-9654.
