Improv is Coming to the Dirt!

On Monday, April 30 Hannah Spear will be offering a FREE improv workshop from 6-10pm.

In this free workshop we will use improv exercises to get you working more from impulse and instinct. We’ll work on playing from your personal point of view, using the wealth of experience from your life to make confident character choices. We will also work to get you comfortable failing.

Whether you are a pro, have taken a couple improv classes, or have felt slight terror at the mere thought of improvising…come to the Dirt for a few hours of challenging fun. Register for by emailing

Location: The Dirt Underneath Actors' Space, 636 Pape (entrance off Cavell)
