What is Improv?

Improv is spontaneous acting and reacting. If you’ve ever laughed at the TV show “Whose Line is it Anyway?,” then you have enjoyed improv. If you’ve never seen it, go to YouTube RIGHT NOW and watch a clip!

Now you have a chance to participate in hilarious activities that actors use to help them react to the unexpected on stage. Whether you’re acting in a play, giving a speech in class, or just chatting with friends, improv can help you succeed.

Come to Improv Games on Tuesday, January 26 at 6:30 PM to experience how much fun improv can be! Registration is required for this free program so visit or call the reference desk to sign up. 


P.S. Don’t forget to vote in the poll in my previous post. I want to know what you think!
