Level 1 Improv|October 15|Patrick Williams

About the class

This class incorporates scenework, movement-based and group exercises to explore the primary fundamentals of improvisation, making you more confident, trusting and graceful on stage. Learn how to say “yes, and…,” make positive choices, initiate and commit to scenes, heighten, use tag-outs and walk-ons, and deliver real-life monologues.

The PIT’s Introduction to Improv class emphasizes creating a rich environment for your scenes, committing to your decisions and your scene partner and beginning with the body as inspiration. There will be a final graduation performance at the PIT for friends, family, and others.

Patrick Williams

Patrick is an actor/ improviser/ comedian who grew up in South Carolina, but now calls Brooklyn his home. He received his BA from the University of South Carolina and his MFA (acting) from The New School for Drama. On Wednesday nights Patrick can be seen performing on The PIT’s house team, The Community Players, as they improvise a community theatre production for a play that has never been written. It’s fun and funny. With his co-writer, developer, and dear friend (Dan Titmuss), Patrick wrote a 2 person 1 hour sci-fi adventure, Life’s Yearning, where all the parts are played by the two performers. When he isn’t performing or auditioning, Patrick hustles as an auctioneer who sells storage lockers for Auctioncheer. Just like Storage Wars!
