Musical-Improv-Comedy Comes to Wes

improv musical comedyA message from Tekla Monson ’18:

Do you like singing? Do you like comedy? Then you should try doing some comedic musical improvisation! Musical improv is the absolutely fascinating, wonderful and exciting art of making up songs on the spot! It’s not as hard as it sounds, I promise.

We are looking for anybody who is interested in creating hilarious original songs never to be heard again. Everyone is welcome: actors, singers, improvisers, non-singers, comedians, adoring fans, musicians…

The first meeting will be this Wednesday, September 16 at 8:15-10 in the Jones Room (first floor of the theater department building). At this first meeting we will play some games, practice rhyming, a little improv rapping and get people introduced to creating songs of the top of your head. It is going to be so much fun!

Date: Wednesday, September 16
Time: 8:15-10 PM
Place: Jones Room
