2018 Summer I classes now open for registration!

Start your summer with improv classes!

      Hi Anjana,

      Due to low registration that class did not make. We are also only a week or two away from our session ending. Our next session of classes will begin on August 12. If you contact us at classes@merlin-work.com, we can put you on our mailing list to alert you as to when classes are ready for registration.
