Our comedy writing classes focus on creating sketch comedy and are great for those wanting to be “behind the scenes”, but are highly recommended for actors as well. This is your chance to learn in a safe, supportive environment that challenges everyone to be better.
Level One: Students learn the fundamentals unique to sketch comedy writing through the review and critique of each other’s work as well as learning the technical aspects of script writing.
Level Two: Students build on their knowledge from Level One to “find their voice” and style. Much of the focus in Level Two will be on developing/collecting themes and ideas for scenes and the different theatrical forms available to approach the writing.
Level Three: Students are challenged to consider how their individual work fits into a full length show and learn to write towards the needs of a comprehensive show. The entire class will continue to refine their scripts through workshopping of their scenes. Individualized feedback is provided to challenge and grow the student’s range.
Term 3 Class Schedule:
At this time, we do not have a Sketch 1 or 2 planned for the spring. Please e-mail email@example.com if you would like to get put on an “interested” list for future class options.
For students who have completed at least one level of sketch writing, please check out the Final Act Coached Ensemble class on Monday nights beginning May 17-June 28.
