Short DescriptionVictor Yerrid, Master Puppeteer & founding member of Jim Henson’s Puppet Up! leads this puppet improv extravaganza. Participants will perform in a series of games & exercises. Big fun, limited spots!
Long DescriptionImprovisation is the ultimate tool to free up your acting. Nearly every puppet show ever created has benefitted from some form of improv, and the more facile your skillset, the more in-demand you will be as a performer. Good improv will help you develop characters, audition stronger, and ultimately become a better actor. PLUS, it’s waaaaay easier than learning a bunch of lines. Just ask Matin Sheen of West Wing fame. He was once quoted as saying “Man, I wish I was a puppeteer who could improvise. That would be a much better job than having to memorize all of this stupid political jargon. I’m Martin Sheen.” So, if you like puppets and don’t want to get stuck working on dialogue heavy scenes with Bradley Whitford and Allison Janney, then come learn how to improvise with puppets. It could be the best life decision you will ever make!
