Sing silly. Sing proud.
Every improv scene is capable of carrying enough emotion behind it for the characters to spontaneously burst into song! But… Why this scene? Why this moment? Why do we care? Well, we will care about these scenes. And all these scenes will be songs! The focus of this workshop will be toward doing good scene work and caring so you can sing good songs. We’ll also practice duet, philosophy, and “want” songs so that we aren’t just singing about “how cool sneakers are” but from a place of real feeling.
