Musical Playground – Advanced 6-week Course


Jazz up your musical improv and put more flair into your performance with a romp through various musical styles.

Taking influences from poignant chansons, sizzling showbiz and more modern musical theatre, we’ll improvise songs from the heartfelt to the bawdy, from tear-jerkers to rocking out.

This is an opportunity to expand your range and become bolder at acting through song, as you embrace your inner show-person and let rip.

For players with experience in musical improv.


This course includes:

– Playing with different genres
– Selling your performance with style
– Singing with soul, humour, character and heart
– Improvised solos, duets and group numbers

“Liz’s enthusiasm and Joe’s dry humor and fantastic musical skills make it a joy ride all along. THANK YOU. A much needed dose of joy, humor, singing and pure plain fun…(AND It doesn’t hurt that you also get a lot of practice, learning new exercises and formats!)”

Participants: Min. 8, Max. 16
