Thursday Night Live!: Comedic Improv for Adults

Instructor: Kate Kelly

Six-Week Session: TBD

Price: $349

Live from Boston Casting, it’s Thursday NIGHT!

Join us at Boston Casting for our new comedic improvisation class for adults, Thursday Night Live. This fast-paced class will culminate in the development of an abbreviated form of the popular Saturday Night Live television show, which will be professionally filmed and edited and made into a DVD for the class.

This six-week class will start with short-form and long-form improvisation exercises, character development, movement training, and improv scene construction. Various improv skits and full scenes will be created by the students with the direction of the instructor and constructed into an entertaining extravaganza.

Furthermore, in this class students will…
• Learn how to think faster and more creatively
• Gain confidence and become a better public speaker
• Tap into their comedic voices
• Perform better in auditions and on their feet
• Create fully developed characters and hone your on-stage persona
• Have a blast!
