    OK. You can sing. You can improvise. You can even improvise a song or two. Now it’s time to learn how to marry your scene work to support your newly minted song so the story you’re telling before, during, and after the song is cohesive and strong. We explore the fundamental building blocks of doing long-form improvised musicals here!

    Workshop limit is 15
    Early Bird Price (until March 17): $30
    Regular Price (March 18-April 28): $45
