Your character has feelings – huge feelings. But sometimes, words just aren’t enough. Enter…music! We will explore point of view, emotion, and desire to figure out what your character wants and why. And then, when we hit that pivotal moment of climactic emotion, you’re gonna break into song! Attendees will learn structures for improvised songs and practice transitioning from scenes into musical duets. See you on the virtual stage!
Stephanie Rae has been studying traditional and musical improv for eleven years. She’s directed a Boyz II Men themed show for UCB’s Del Close Marathon, guest played with everyone from the Groundlings to ComedySportz, and taught classes and workshops for improvisers from Louisiana to Liverpool. These days, she directs the Black Improv Alliance, performing with International Players Club and Wakanda vs. Everybody, and running the 100 Black Improvisers Partnership – a program which has created scholarships for Black improvisers at more than 60 theaters around the world. She also has a law degree from Georgetown – but mostly uses it to win arguments online. Catch her rapping about gratitude as an ambassador for Freestyle Love Supreme Academy and making scenes in theaters across the globe and all over Obama’s internet.
