Chicago’s '“After Party” musical improv troupe is excited to offer this all-levels workshop, where they encourage improvisors to sing loud and proud! Through musical exercises, group games, and character work, they aim to add music improv to your troupe’s arsenal. You’ll focus on the foundations of musical improv, including song structure and musical tropes, to better express unique character points of view.

Workshop includes:

  • Games and exercises to get you on your feet!

  • Song Structure (verse structure, group choruses, duets, etc.)

  • Genre Work (employing genres to articulate character POV)

  • Finding the Game (variety numbers, dance breaks, musical scene painting)

  • Burning it Down (character discoveries, transition through song, closing numbers)

  • Bringing it All Together (culmination of musical montage and/or narrative set)

This workshop will get you up on your feet, singing and having a great time. Space is limited!
