Free Intro to Improv & Improv Singing

Want to test the water before you decide to take the plunge? At this free class you’ll get a sample of our style as we play fun, fast paced games and make up songs with a live musical improviser. It’s like karaoke, but you make up your own words! This class is for those who want to learn how to think faster on their feet, be more spontaneous and in the moment, reconnect with their creativity, be more confident speaking in public and just have more fun! You also don’t need to be a great singer, you just need to enjoy singing.

Improv Mixer (Free!)

Merlin Works hosts monthly improv mixers third Sundays 3pm – 5pm at The ZACH. The Mixer is  a free, facilitated improv comedy jam intended to introduce the joy of improv to new people and help existing improvisers make new connections.

The Mixer is open to the entire community: total newbies, current students, free agents, existing troupes looking for new members, coaches, or anyone who wants a free workout. At the beginning, any scouts and coaches will let the group know what they are looking for. Then an instructor will lead an improv warmup where everyone will get to know each other and get comfortable. Then we will be divided into groups for open scenework.
