2022 Gene Fox Memorial Improv Workshops

UPDATED INFORMATION (1/4/22):  This event has been cancelled.  Current registrants are being notified.

-----------------------------------------------

When Gene Fox passed away, the Friends received generous memorial gifts from has friends and family, who during his lifetime was a great supporter of the Friends and the Library, and a beloved English teacher at Northfield High School.  Those who knew Gene called him “a great wit” with a love of humor and comedy, and special commitment to education at all levels.

What better way to honor Gene Fox than with a series of workshops in comedy?

These workshops will focus on the fundamentals of improv:  listening, agreement and trust.  Using a variety of exercises, you’ll practice relating to your scene partners and adding specifics.  They will conclude with a short show that’s a mix of games and short scenes on February 5 (6:30 pm at the Arts Guild Theater).

For adults, four 3-hour sessions, 9 am – 12 noon, Saturdays, January 8, 15, 22, and 29.

For high schoolers, four 3-hour sessions, 1 pm – 4 pm, Saturdays, January 8, 15, 22, and 29.

A shorter, one session “sampler” workshop for middle schoolers will be held the afternoon of February 5, from 2 pm – 5 pm.
