Improvisation is acting without a script, and often includes audience participation. Students will learn the basic rules of improv, and then a variety of theater games and comedy improv games such as those featured on the television show, Whose Line is it Anyway? To put their new skills to work the class will present some of their favorite games for friends and family at 2:00 pm.

Julie Donofrio has been making people laugh for years, sometimes on purpose. She has worked as a comedian, improv actor, and humor writer (of the column Take My Advice; I’m Not Using It) and has appeared everywhere from New York City comedy clubs to the beverage tent at the Monroe County Fair.  She has performed in the Toronto and Rochester Fringe Festivals, and her television credits include a guest-starring role in the pilot “Finding Fabulous.” Julie is also a children’s entertainer and a teacher, and was the recipient of a Big Pencil Award from Writers & Books in 2015.
