In The Scene you will learn how to create interesting and entertaining two person scenes from nothing, with a focus on relationships and what is really going on between the two characters. The Scene will involve personal feedback and side coaching from your teacher to take your improvisation to the next level. 

This level focuses on the two person scene which is the backbone of Chicago style long form improvisation.   The Scene will allow participants to understand Big Fork Theatre's signature style of play while also complimenting and improving their own set of skills.
