character course

With Maria Peters from The Playground and Breaking & Entering.

Expand your character range and go beyond your default characters.

We all have certain characters that we go to in improv, from naturalistic to larger than life. We will be providing fun energetic exercises and helpful feedback to help you to get out of your comfort zone and find new ways of improvising characters and expand your character range.

We will be teaching a variety of great tools to help find characters in improv including Physicality, Inspiration from Animals, Voice, Tempo and more.

We’ll be putting this all together to improvise fun yet believable characters that have depth, as even the weirdest of weirdo characters have feelings too!

We’ll then be looking at how to hold your character with relationships in longer scenes as they are put into various situations with lots and lots of scene and character practice.

Most of all it’s going to be LOADS of fun with a fun and energetic teaching style.

This course is suitable for people with previous experience. If you are totally new to improv it would be best to start with our beginners improv course first.
