Improv as an Actor: Acting & Stage Skills for Improv


Improv is stagecraft… let’s treat it that way! You’ve learned to be spontaneous, to accept and build off of your scene partner's ideas. You’re already awesome at really being in the moment and creating delightful outcomes. So how do you take your work up to the next level? By bringing professional acting skills to the stage! In this workshop you will gain acting, staging and delivery skills frequently practiced by professional actors in scripted works and apply them to your improv. Learn easy tricks to create beautiful stage pictures. Gain voice projection skills to make sure you can be heard in any venue. Learn to set up and balance your stage. Want to look better at what you already do wonderfully? Join us in learning new ways to properly grace the stage.

About the instructors:

Currently based in Oregon, he teaches with Northwest Children’s Theater & School, PHAME and his own company as well as guest performing and directing in scripted and non scripted works throughout Portland’s theaters and schools.  

With nearly thirty years of experience on stage, Aden Nepom has been winning awards and recognition for her abilities since she was six years old. During her decade in Austin, Texas she enjoyed being a fixture in the exploding improv community as a beloved singer, improviser and a faculty member of the Merlin Works Institute for Improvisation, where she headed up the musical improv training program for two years.  Labeled as “The funniest person in Austin,” by former Second City L.A. Director Tom Booker, she is a cast member of  B. Iden Payne Award winners, Girls Girls Girls Improvised Musical Comedy, an alum of world famous vaudeville revue: Esther’s Follies (where she spent the majority of 2011 wearing huge wigs, singing big songs and getting massive laughs). Now, thrilled to have rejoined the trees, rain and fog as a resident of Oregon, Aden can be found playing with her husband in Manacle as a member of Infinite Improv! or directing and collaborating on exciting musical improv projects like the Brody Theatre’s A Something Kind of Musical.
