Phoenixville Area Improv Games Returns Tomorrow

Looking for something fun to do before settling down to watch the Eagles tomorrow night? Phoenixville Improv has the answer:

It's time for another night of playing improv games and making each other laugh until we cry. Phoenixville's LIFE UNCHAINED has graciously agreed to give us their space for a few hours at a very affordable cost - so it's time to improv it up again!

  • Always wanted to try your hand at some of the games on Whose Line Is It Anyway and other improv shows?
  • Have a sneaking suspicion that you’re extraordinarily witty?
  • Trying to improve your acting skills, decrease your reaction time when put on the spot, or increase your comfort with speaking in front of a crowd?
  • Looking for some new friends and a few hours of laughter?

Join us for an afternoon of improv exercises for fun!

We will do some warm-ups, some group activities, and some skit scenarios. Nobody gets put on the spot, but be prepared to laugh at yourself. This improv meetup is geared toward beginners - people who don't necessarily have professional acting/improv experience but who like to have a good time and who don't mind a few minutes in the spotlight.

Date: 1/4/14 from 5-7pm
Location: Phoenixville's Life Unchained DREAM FACTORY - 375 Morgan Street | Suite 3B, Phoenixville, PA
Cost: $3 per person cash, proceeds go to Life Unchained Charity
