Virtual Fall Improv Workshop 2020
Fall Virtual Improv Theatre Program was a success!
After the success of our virtual summer program in June and July, the BCT team was excited to bring you a fall workshop series beginning in September.
Once a week, participants met virtually to study the foundations of improv and learn what it takes to be successful improvisers. The six-week course built up to small group scenes and classic improv games, while also teaching students how to use improvisational skills in their every day lives. This program was for students ages 8 to 18 years old. There was an online, informal performance for friends and family hosted after the last session on October 21 at 7:00 pm.

By the end of this workshop, students created scenes with a partner or a small group and shared in a virtual performance.
