THIRD THURSDAY at the MUSEUM
An Evening with the Comedy Spot and Improv
Join us and the Comedy Spot for a brief glimpse into the world of Improv. Learn the fundamentals of improvisation with interactive exercises that will build listening and communication skills, heighten awareness and teach you how to be more playful, spontaneous and flexible. Play short form improv games in a fun and safe environment. Join us for the best local dessert and coffee and an event that is part artist portrait, part history lesson, part community forum and part creative event. Open to the public; donations welcome.
