Our Theater Workshops showcase student actors ages 8-18 and teach them to shine!
The coach and director of the RTB's wildy successful in-house improv comedy troupe "Role in the Hay Players" is offering adult (18 and over) classes in improv at the Barn! Class size is limited to 14.
The classes are 6 weeks long, and end with a small performance for family and friends on October 4th.
If you like the show Whose Line is it Anyway? then these courses are right up your alley. Many of the techniques employed in improv are based on teamwork concepts. In addition to the humor, improv can improve your ability to "think on your feet," and has been known to help with public speaking and assertiveness.
In addition to being a founding member and coach of the RITHP for almost eight years, Rick trained with the Gotham City Improv in NYC and performed in their ensembles for two years (a group of the famous LA Groundlings who moved to NYC and started a school). He also trained with the Upright Citizen's Brigade in NYC (a group that was stated in part by Amy Poehler from Saturday Night Live, graduates from which are appearing in The Office and major motion pictures). \
