SUMMIT, NJ - Enrollment for Dreamcatcher's Adult and Teen Fall Improv Class is underway, with the Repertory Theatre Company hosting a six-week program beginning October 6 and continuing through November 10.

Classes wil delve deep into the craft of Improv with more complex games as the weeks progress. The Improv Class is designed for new improvisers, and also for actors who want to add another dimension to their skills. For those who come with a foundation of Improv skills, Maulbeck will introduce games that require keeping 'many balls in the air' at once. The environment is supportive and responsive to the needs of students with any level of experience. Improv is a valuable skill for countless situations such as public speaking, auditions and job interviews as well.
