Beyond Comedy Improv

Next Stage Training Programs
Project of Theater Residencies, Inc.

Who graduates on April Fool’s Day? Improv students – we step into the unknown and trust we’ll figure it out – together. When we do – Magic happens.

We would love for you to join us as we graduate from being a Theater Games workshop to being an improvisational performance ensemble.  We want to share the fun we’ve been having, learning to be players in this freeing, transformational art form and are inviting folks we know, to be our supportive audience. You may also be interested to see for yourself what kinds of crazy things we do. It’s entertaining, fun and goes beyond comedy “improv.”

The NEXT Stage is directed by Marcia Kimmell.  She draws techniques from various sources, her training with Viola Spolin at the Second City in Chicago being most influential.

NEXT Stage Workshops:

  • Theater Games Intensive, Berkeley Saturday, April 6
  • Beginning Theater Games, 8 weeks, San Francisco Thursday Evenings
