[image-1] Award-winning local comedian Andy Livengood is teaching a five-week improv class for teens ages 13-17 at Threshold Repertory Theatre starting next Thurs. July 19. The class is held every Thursday, July 19-August 16 from 4-5:30 p.m. and will end with a graduation performance for family and friends. You can register and pay on Threshold Repertory’s website for the $200 workshop.

Teens will learn the ins and outs of improv comedy like how to build a scene using teamwork as well as the tenants of improv. There are no boring lectures or theory in this workshop — instead, students will learn by getting on stage and doing scenes together.

Livengood studied improv at the Upright Citizens Brigade in NYC and the Annoyance Theater in Chicago and CCP voted Livengood “Best Local Comic” in 2010. His extensive background in improv, comedy, and acting ensures he will have plenty of wisdom to pass on to the future improv generation.
