game of the scene

Improvise hilarious scenes that look like beautifully honed comedy sketches.

In Hoopla’s Game of the Scene mini-course you will learn how to create hilarious improvised scenes that look like beautifully honed sketches to your audience.

Game of the Scene is identifying the FUN thing (or one of the many fun things!) in the scene and then playing with it and escalating it.

It allows you to repeat and escalate funny behaviours to create comedic characters, fantastic scenes and detailed worlds. It’s like improv electricity used to power your scene!

In this course you’ll learn how to identify, create and play Game of the Scene through playful exercises while having lots of practice with your fellow improvisers.

It will add an invaluable tool to your improv arsenal that will allow you to get even more fun from your scenes and shows!
