Workshops with Kevin McDonald
Work along side Kevin, and gather tips and advice from a legend in the field!

If you are looking to improve your improv you can join us for "Keeping the Story Going",  a 4 hour romp through improv and story telling on Saturday May 20th.

On Sunday May 21st, we will create a "Writers Room" and work together to evolve your brilliant ideas into sketches!  Come with a one line premise and explore the process to shape it into a real live scene! Work one on one with Kevin and other local writers and performers, cast and direct your scene, and perform it in front of a live audience!  All in one day!

The Sunday sketch writing workshop will culminate in a comedy show with local favorites Minori Hinds, Marlene Thompson and Blacklist Improv.  The show will include the sketches written in the workshop, improv, stand up and most other forms of comedy!
