In level 3 you will continue to focus on strong listening and reacting without interrupting your scene partner. Making sure “the beginning of your sentence doesn’t get in the way of the middle of theirs”. You will reinforce saying “Yes, and…!” Until you have to say “no thank you”. Work on the first-second and third beats of two person scenes as well as continuing to focus on editing by following your foot connected to your gut and heart to edit scenes at the height. Learn how to “heighten and tighten” a scene organically glued in reality to create “win-win” fun scenes to play to entertain yourself and others while “treating your partner like a genius”.

Instructor

Pat Swearingen is from Danville, Illinois. Gene Hackman and Dick Van Dyke are also from that city. Just sayin’. A featured performer at The PIT you can also catch him​touring the country in “Broadway’s Next Hit Musical”
(www.broadwaysnexthitmusical.com). Pat has also appeared in the original casts of the “Unauthorized: The Musical” version​s of “Back To The Future” (Doc Brown), “The Hunger Games” (Caesar) and “Nightmare on Elm Street” (Freddy Krueger). ​Recent new works include “The Magnificient Revengers” by Matt Cox, “Talk To Me” by Megan Bussiere, and “Paradise Lost & Found” by Tirosh Schneider”. Pat is lucky to be a much in demand improv coach/instructor and his favorite credit is teaching kids how to act and write plays for eleven seasons at the Williamstown Theatre Festival through an extension of the 52nd Street Project. Also, if you don’t blink, you can catch him dancing at da club in the “I’m Rick James, b***h!” sketch for “Chappelle’s Show”.

“Pat Swearingen is a powerhouse! By the end of the first act I was in love, by the end of the second I had discovered a new emotion stronger than that just to feel for him!”-OnStage

“Highlights include Pat Swearingen who almost single-handedly steals the show as hilariously over-the-top TV host Caesar.”-Bestnewyorkcomedy.com
