Go way off-book! There are things scripted, and things improvised, and in-between are the doors…of scripted improv. Scripting Aloud’s next event Saturday, May 25 explores the space between tightly scripted material, and unstructured improv – with outlined scenarios from THE PRODIGAL FATHER (feature, dramedy) by Ronin Wong. Plenty of room to play? You’re right!
Local creator in attendance. Performer casting (all OE) from 2:30 pm on the day (arrive early/on time!). Scripted improv session from 3:00 pm. $2 Membership* at the door, cash only.
Cross-cultural scripts and writers — for our cross-cultural community, and a borderless audience. If this is your reality (or you want it to be), this event is for you!
