4th Street Theater
Address: 4th St Theatre, Chesterton, IN 46304, USA

Have you ever wanted to improvise songs like they do on Whose Line is it Anyway? Then Laura & Rick Hall’s Music Improv workshop will be perfect for you!

Rick Hall (The Second City, Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Factory) and Laura (Whose Line Is It Anyway, Drew Carey’s and The Improv All-Stars) create a supportive, fun workshop environment where you can grow, explore and move out of your comfort zone, starting with warmups and games to help ease into singing.

If you’re new to improv in general or just want to see what song improv is about, this workshop is perfect for you. You’ll build vocal confidence and learn to listen to each other and the accompaniment. You’ll learn about creating characters and stories through song. Before you know it, you’ll be belting out your own great improvised songs! We’ll work on songprov as a natural extension of your existing improv skills. We’ll focus on creating a strong who and where for your songs, look at musical form and structure, advanced harmonies and more.

Tickets are:
$50 for students who want to fully participate and interact directly with Laura & Rick.
$35 for people who want to audit the workshop and observe only (no stage time/direct time with Laura or Rick)

Space is limited!
