Last night, I attended my penultimate level 1 improv class at The Pit. One of the consequences of having a class is having a class show at the end of the term. For the first time last night, we practiced doing the actual form we’ll be performing in our show. After being kind of down about my performance ability last week, I was actually quite encouraged.
We’re still a bit rough around the edges, but I think that (by level 1 standards) we’ll put on a solid show. For much of the rest of the class, it will be a possibly terrifying learning experience. For me, it will be getting back on a saddle that had been long collecting dust in a closet. This is the first time that I’ve performed improv on a public stage as part of a real team in 8 years.
Please come, won’t you?
