Improve With Improv!
A Guide to Improvisation and Character Development

By Brie Stewart Jones


Cover of
This book is a complete improvisational curriculum program divided into twenty class-length workshops.  Each workshop contains carefully selected exercises designed to help students focus on one aspect of a character’s personality.  Students learn how to create characters from their own imaginations through the use of solo and ensemble pantomime, physicalization, vocal techniques, props and more.  Gestures, facial expressions, voice and body language are studied in isolation.  Many ensemble sketches are included, along with a final improv sketch with enough roles for all members of a large class.  The book also includes a class syllabus and guidelines, a character outline sheet, character examples and a reading list.  This is a must for any drama program wanting to teach improvisation, but not knowing where to start.
