About the Class:

Whether you’re an actor looking to improve your scene work through creating grounded in-the-moment relationship based scenes, an improviser looking to sharpen your skills or get out of a rut, or someone who is brand new and looking for a new fun way to express themselves this workshop is for you.

In this workshop we focus on being real before being funny. We’ll work specifically on responding emotionally to your scene partner, playing through authentically/being vulnerable on stage, playing through character, developing/cultivating your own unique comedic voice, using your environment as well as specificity to add depth to your scenes, playing from a sense of power rather than fear and more. The class will be followed by a performance to showcase what you’ve learned throughout.

After the class you will have a chance to perform your knewly learned skills in front of an audience. Invite your friends and Family to come and see what you have done. The show will start at 5pm and is open to the public.

About the Instructors:

Jessica Duffey has been performing nearly all her life. She got her bachelor’s degree in Theater at Metropolitan State University and has acted professionally in many different productions throughout Colorado’s Front Range.

She’s left her imprint on the Denver Improv scene as an ensemble member ofIntentionally Left Blank (ILB) and The Ladies. She’s a recent graduate of iO Chicago and has performed at many different venues throughout the Chicago improve scene.

Connor Duffey is what clinicians have deemed an improv junkie. He lives and breathes it, without it… he will die (or so he claims. So don’t try to get in between him and improv). He’s a graduate of theSecond City Conservatory, iO Chicago, and The Annoyance Theater. He performed on various stages throughout Chicago including the aforementioned theaters.

Connor can be seen performing weekly at Backstage at Beryl’s (JUMP! alongside Jessica) and at The Voodoo Comedy Playhouse where he performs with various teams and coaches the house team Ignore the Chunks, who he is extremely proud of.

In case you haven’t figured it out, Connor and Jessica are married and met five years ago being goofballs in Redneck Romeo and Juliet an improvised story of doomed love (foreboding isn’t it).
