Improv Drop-In: Thursday 2 May 2019

HEADS UP! We are not at Malt Cross for the next few weeks as they’ve got a hideous flooding problem to resolve! Instead, we’re upstairs at The Castle pub this week.

This week’s drop-in: Guess the Character, WIN A PRIZE! 

Brought to you by Elliott.

A great actor can play anyone in any situation, but you don’t often see people lining up around the block to see the most critically adored actors. You usually see people lining up to see the stars with genuine charisma like Al Pacino, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, George Clooney, Will Smith and Paris Hilton, who in every role are themselves and don’t often play different people, eg Al Pacino as the cop, Al Pacino as the lawyer. George Clooney as the suave father figure, Dwayne Johnson as the All-Star American Football player / Hero A / Hero B / Hero / C etc, Paris Hilton as the wise ol’ Librarian. They play themselves and people fall in love with the character of them. That’s what makes them a star.
This week you will be draw a certain character or characteristic from Elliott’s bag of characters, which you will use your charismatic improvisational skills to play throughout a series of 2-4 person open scenes. Don’t worry about trying to be Harrison Ford – it’s always you as Harrison Ford! Use yourself as inspiration for how you would play that character. Pay attention, because at the end of the drop-in we’ll sit down to guess who played what and those who sucessfully guess correctly will go in the hat at the end to win an amazing prize!
