TCPTCP – Comedy Performance

Perfect timing, bold character choices, finding your voice…these are tools that can be used by actors inside and outside of the comedic sphere. Our Comedy Performance classes provide students with comprehensive curriculums that challenge our students in a safe and supportive environment, with opportunities to perform on stage at The Comedy Project.

Acting Essentials:  In this 4 week course students learn the fundamentals and elements of comedic performance in a playful, group environment. We’ll explore the technical aspects of acting as well as the building blocks of vocal, physical, and emotional expression, listening, agreement, making choices, and working in an ensemble.

Prerequisites for Acting Essentials: N/A

Performance Lab: In this 4 week course students gain valuable performance experience as they are coached and  directed in multiple comedy sketches.
