My first improvisation show

Just last month I wrote about the upcoming end of my foundation improvisation classes at Bad Dog Theater with Alastair Forbes. Well, last weekend, we put together an end of class show! It wasn’t the first time I’ve been on a stage (although that hasn’t happened too often), but definitely my first improvisation show. However, I was actually more excited than anything. The thing with improvising is that you don’t have to worry about what you’re supposed do.. you’re just gonna make it up on the spot!

Our whole class did good and got laughs from the crowd. Alastair was proud of us and encouraged us all to participate in more shows and to continue our improv training with intermediate and advanced classes. All in all, my experience at Bad Dog Theater, Alastair, the substitute teachers (for the few classes he couldn’t make) and my fellow classmates has been a great one! I plan to take more classes with Bad Dog in the Fall.
