“Focus & Fun” Workshop with Josh Simpson
Sep 5 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm
"Focus & Fun" Workshop with Josh Simpson

This is a workshop focused on pinning your scenes down so you can have fun blowing them up. Students will work on making big, clear decisions at the top of their scenes to get on the same page with their scene partners. Then, once you and your scene partner are on the same page, we will go over a few techniques you can use to explore your scenes, push your scene partner and surprise yourself and your audience. Improv scenes last for 3 minutes. This workshop is about getting on the same page with your scene partner and having the most amount of fun possible in that short amount of time.

Josh Simpson is a writer, actor and improviser from Los Angeles who performs and teaches at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theater.
