Dreamcatcher Repertory Theatre, professional Theatre in Residence at the Oakes Center in Summit, will offer two levels of Fall Improv classes for adults and teens beginning September 10.

Improv expert Lulu French (Maplewood) will teach the six-week Improv Comedy for Teens and Adults classes. Level 1, for students who have little or no improv experience, runs from September 10 through October 15 on Saturdays from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm at MONDO, 426 Springfield Avenue in Summit.
Level 2, for students who have taken Lulu’s Level 1 class or the equivalent, runs from September 10 through October 29 on Saturdays from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm at the Oakes Center, 120 Morris Avenue in Summit.

These classes delve deep into the craft of improv with more complex games as the weeks progress. The Level 1 class is great for new improvisers, and also for actors who want to add another dimension to their skills. Level 2 is geared toward those with a foundation in improv skills who are ready to work on games that require keeping many balls in the air at once, and who would like a showcase at the end of the session.

Improv is a valuable skill for countless situations such as public speaking, auditions and job interviews as well. Lulu French has long performed with and taught for Gotham City Improv in New York City, and has taught improv to theatre students at the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU, among many other places. The cost for the Level 1 class (six weeks) is $210, and the Level 2 class (eight weeks) is $280.

Municipal and street parking is available for the class held at MONDO, including a garage directly behind the building. At Oakes, parking is available in the lot behind the theatre on Ashwood Avenue and at the Summit Recreation Center on Morris Avenue. Both facilities are wheelchair accessible.
