Do Players Workshop classes require previous improvisation or acting experience?
Improvisation teaches us to say “Yes and…” but the answer here is a resounding "No.” You do not need any acting or improvisational acting experience to sign up, participate and enjoy.
I’ve taken some improv classes before. Can I skip the Beginning courses and jump ahead to Intermediate or Advanced?
How old or young can students be?
Can I use improvisation classes as a type of personal therapy for my life?
Good question. But “No.” Participating in classes can be “therapeutic” and freeing without needing to delve into emotional or psychological “therapy.” We’d like to discuss this more but your time is up for today….
Can I pay by check? I’m allergic to plastic.
We suggest using Benadryl and PayPal. Unfortunately, we are not set up to accept cash or check at this time.
How’s the parking around the Pendulum Theatre?
Street parking is plentiful in the neighborhood.
In addition, there are 5–6 spaces along the fence in the parking lot directly south of the building between 5PM and 12AM from Monday thru Friday, and all day on Saturday and Sunday. DO NOT PARK anywhere else in the parking lot as you will be towed. NOTE: You cannot enter the theatre building through the parking lot.
I live far away. Do you have overnight arrangements for out-of-towners?
Do I have to sign up for your complete one-year course?
What if I get kicked out of class?
Woof. Why are you already thinking like that? If you are asked to leave a class, we will meet with you first, determine why ‘it’s not working out" and find out if this is the right place for you to study. As stated in the terms and conditions of signing up, there are no refunds so our advice is to not get kicked out of class in the first place.
