New! Intro to Improv Singing (Free!)
Want to test the water before you decide to take the plunge? At this free class you’ll get a sample of our style as we make up songs with a live musical improviser. It’s like karaoke, but you make up your own words! You don’t need to be a great singer, you just need to enjoy singing.
Improv Mixer (Free!)
Merlin Works hosts monthly improv mixers first Saturdays 2pm – 4pm at The Long Center. The Mixer is a free, facilitated improv comedy jam intended to introduce the joy of improv to new people and help existing improvisers make new connections.
The Mixer is open to the entire community: total newbies, current students, free agents, existing troupes looking for new members, coaches, or anyone who wants a free workout. At the beginning, any scouts and coaches will let the group know what they are looking for. Then an instructor will lead an improv warmup where everyone will get to know each other and get comfortable. Then we will be divided into groups for open scenework. It’s free, it’s fun, and you just might find the people to for your next show, troupe or dinner party.
