Section 1
Intro to the Art of Slow Improv with Jimmy Carrane

Jimmy believes that improv should be as easy as having a conversation and that is what the Art of Slow Comedy method is all about. It does not matter if you are a seasoned actor or new to improv, Jimmy will meet you where you are at.

In this in-person workshop, you will learn the tools of improvisation. We will work on:

  • Being more authentic and vulnerable
  •  Becoming more creative and spontaneous.
  • Having a freedom on stage that you have never experienced before.
  • Learning to be supported in taking more risks on stage

Section 2
Open Scenes with Jack Schultz

When an actor gets a script, it’s easy to immediately get trapped in their head about the “correct” way to say their lines. In the second section of Chicago Style Triple Threat students will:

  • Memorize a short scene
  • Experiment with techniques that allow the scene to feel like an improvisation with memorized words
  • Share the scenes with the class

Section 3
Musical Improv with Alexandra Plattos Sulack

Musical improv is an extension of scenic work. In this third section of the Chicago Style Triple Threat workshop, we will:

  • Explore vocal warm ups and why they’re important
  • Build upon the listening and communication skills with vocal clowning
  • Play structured games to continue building on listening skills already at play throughout the workshop

Occasionally we’ll have to cancel a workshop due to low enrollment. We’re sorry if that happens to you! If we have to cancel a workshop you’ve signed up for, we will give you at least 48 hours notice and promptly start your refund process.

In the event that class is canceled due to circumstances beyond our control (including but not limited to extreme weather and pandemic related shutdowns), a make-up will be scheduled as soon as it’s safe for our students and instructors to be together safely at the studio.

In some cases classes may transfer to an online platform. If a student is unable to attend the rescheduled class due to circumstances beyond our control (including but not limited to extreme weather and pandemic related shutdowns) that student will receive credit on their account for the value of missed classes.

Attendance Policy

Closed Accordion

In order to get the most out of your work with us, our students should make showing up to every class on time a priority.

We understand that things do come up so if you know you’re going to miss a class, please give your instructor as advance notice as possible. This will help them get you caught up and not throw off the rest of the group. Scheduling a make-up class is possible but not guaranteed.

Students enrolled in our Meisner Acting Program can only advance to the next level if they’ve attended at least 6 of their 8 sessions. If a student misses more than 2 sessions, they will need to retake the level in order to advance in the program.
