Do you want to bring your musical improv to the next level? Join Laura Hall (Musical Director, “Whose Line Is It Anyway?”, The Second City Chicago) and Rick Hall (Actor, “Curb Your Enthusiasm”, The Second City Chicago) for this advanced workshop.
Rick & Laura have taught musical improv at comedy clubs, theaters, high schools and universities all over the world. You’ll work with two seasoned improvisers and get two uniquely different perspectives- one from an experienced improv actor and the other from an improv musician.
Rick & Laura create a lively, supportive environment where you can grow and explore various long form musical elements. We’ll look at rhyming, harmony singing, musical form and structure, communicating with a Musical Director and more.
We’ll explore integrating music into any kind of long form show, including the Harold, Armando and Improvised Musical. We’ll focus on music improv as a natural extension of scenic work, digging deep into character, story and emotion to create rich and interesting songs; creating a strong “who” and “where” for your songs, and building scenes to “earn” the song. We’ll work on large ensemble singing, including improvised choreography. All in a positive setting where you can explore, stretch out, and most importantly, have fun.
Attending this workshop gets you into the show that night for free!
