Overreact the Part: Fun in Drama

About this Event

We’ve all found ourselves in either dramatic, emotional scenes or goofy, high-energy ones. What happens when we smash them together? In this workshop, you’ll discover how to relish in emotionally-charged scenes and celebrate the drama. Just think Reality TV! Cheesy romcoms! Your mom’s favourite soap opera!

Learn how to:

– Discover the range of your emotions and reactions

– Play the emotion of the scene without zapping the energy

– Build up to or “earn” the dramatic moment

Nursery/Maydays Sunday Classes

We work hard to provide a welcoming environment for all improvisers. In order to give space to different experiences and identities, the Nursery and the Maydays have worked to provide opportunities for specific groups to meet, connect, and improvise with one another. Each workshop will cover different topics depending on the instructor. Sometimes sessions will be aimed at particular skills, issues and questions, and other times they will simply be a place for people to come together and play.

The Nursery and the Maydays are constantly working to create programming based on the needs of our current students and the global improv community. If there is an underrepresented group that you would like to see have a workshop, send an email to classes@thenurserytheatre.com

Min. participants 6, max. 12.

Intermediate (3/6 months+) These classes will be opportunities to add tools to your growing toolbox. Normally these classes will expect players to be confident playing scenes. These classes will provide practice and specific new skills.

NB: Our electives frequently sell out, but do not despair if this class has. You have not missed your shot. If enough people join the waiting list, we are often able to put the same class on a few days after or in parallel. So if you were excited, join up and we will be in touch.
