“Sketch from Improv” Workshop | Saturday, August 24 | 10:30am-2:30pm

In this 4-hour workshop, students explore the art of turning improvisational scenes into polished comedy sketches. With Kevin McDonald's expertise, you'll learn how to refine characters, build comedic momentum, and craft hilarious storylines. In the second half of this class, students will put their newfound knowledge to the test as they work independently to shape their own improv scenes into fully-fledged comedy sketches. 18+ only. Maximum capacity: 16. Tickets: $150 at www.theimprovcentre.ca 

“One-Line Premise” Workshop | Sunday, August 25 | 10:30am-2:30pm 

In this workshop, students will dive deep into the world of comedy writing, focusing on crafting hilarious sketches from one-line premises. Each student must bring their own one-line premise for a comedy sketch, such as "What if a guy was $10 short of being a millionaire?" Together, you'll dissect each premise, exploring its comedic potential and brainstorming ideas to flesh it out into a full scene. With Kevin McDonald's expert guidance, students will learn how to structure scenes, develop comedic characters, and build engaging storylines. This workshop is a writing workshop – students will not be improvising or performing. 18+ only. Maximum capacity: 16. Tickets: $150 at www.theimprovcentre.ca
