Ever been trapped on stage when the show has gone horribly awry and no one knows how to get it back on track? Improv can help with that! Plus it's just a lot of fun!
Come have the lovely ladies of Ophelia's Rope (and long time Cone Man Running affiliates) teach you the basics of improv.
Participants will acquire improvisational skills through games, exercises, activities and self-exploration designed to encourage learning while having fun. These courses will provide you new tools to add to your improv/acting toolbox. You will learn to build upon your scene partners' offers, practice active listening, use the environment, make your fellow improviser look good, emotionally commit, create strong new characters, explore actors' instruments, learn not to worry and have fun!
Workshops are on Saturday from 10 am - 12 pm with a show/improv jam session where you will get to perform the following Sunday at the Beacon and show what you learned!
Please wear clothing that will allow you to move.

ABOUT OPHELIA'S ROPE
Ophelia’s Rope comes backed with extensive experience in theatre, improv, dancing, singing, film, and athleticism. Member Autumn Clack majored in Acting at Adelphi University in New York, and coupled it with a minor in Dance, emphasis on ballet and modern styles. After, she attended London Dramatic Academy where she dove deep within the world of Shakespeare. Additionally, Clack has acquired skills in stage combat, pointe dance, aerial, dialect detection, and choreography. Ruth McCleskey graduated magna cum laude at the University of Houston, where she scored her BA in Theatre, emphasis on Acting and Directing. Since, she has continued learning in the fields of acting, improv, stage combat, TV and film production, and dancing in the forms of two-step, swing, tango, waltz, plus several more. The ladies of Ophelia’s Rope improv journey started in 2005 when they joined Massive Improv. There they participated on multiple teams, taking them to Austin, Chicago, San Francisco. Eventually, though Clack and McCleskey drifted from Massive Improv to focus on other artistic endeavors, they both heard improv beckoning them to return. Thus, Ophelia’s Rope was born! The team has performed in the Houston Improv Festival, the Austin Out of Bounds Festival, ComedySportz, Boston Comedy Arts Festival, The Trill Festival, Chicago Improv Festival, Del Close Marathon and The PIT in NY.
