The way to build the highest tower is with a strong base. The workshop is designed for a wide range of experience and comfort levels, from beginners with no practical theater experience to advanced thespians seeking a challenge. The workshop will cover the basics of listening, agreement and teamwork. After learning fundamentals students will participate in short form games and activities that we'll create a strong background for an improviser whether in this career or any other. Dennis Verrett is an improv veteran living in Flagstaff. Ever since he was small he has wanted to be one of the big names on "Whose Line is it Anyway?" Dennis began his practice in high school and has since joined NAU's improv team NAUghty Bits, as well as started a flagstaff based improv school called Tiny Punches.

Only for adults over 18 the final session will include a performance open to the public at 7 pm.
