Feb. 25: Learn improv acting for free

February 24, 2009

Learn life skills. Overcome your fears. Make friends (hopefully).

The Improv Acting Club at CSU is proud to announce dates for its Spring 2009 Introductory Improv Acting session.

From beginners to experts

Workshops are suitable for all levels of performers, and are specifically geared teach fundamentals of improv acting to students whether they have or haven't acted before.

Students new to acting or improv often gain a new confidence in themselves and learn skills that help them overcome daily fears or hesitations; students with acting background typically develop a substantially greater sense of onstage presence.

Regardless of your professional goals, improv will help you develop your confidence and communication skills in ways that directly improve your in-class presentations and your interactions with both friends and strangers!

Opening real doors

If, however, you have dreams of being a performer...students who have studied improv at CSU have gone on to find temendous professional success: Alumni have trained with Second City in Chicago, studied at the Upright Citizen's Brigade in Los Angeles, received commercial acting gigs, produced and written shows in Chicago, New York and San Francisco, performed professionally with Second City, taught professionally for Second City, and performed on MadTV.

This is the first class in a series taught by the Improv Acting Club at CSU; students who complete this class will have additional classes available to them in the fall 2009 semester (and possibly over the summer, depending on interest). Also keep an eye out for this semester's advanced improv class presentation of the all-original production, Zombie Apocalypse: The Musical.

Class time

Class will be taught by the Clown Box Improv Theatre Company's managing director, Remi Frazier. This is a free 8-week workshop series held through a CSU student organization, and is NOT a formal CSU course. Classes will be held on Wednesday nights, from 6-8 p.m., in CSU's fabulous new University Center for the Arts in Room 240. The first class will be Wednesday, Feb. 25; if for any reason you can make the series of classes, but not the first class, please email the instructor. For all questions, please e-mail

See you Wednesday!
