Instructor: John Waldron
A skit is a very short play, usually performed in an informal setting. With very few props and little preparation, they can be used in schools, camps, at work-related conferences, and many other venues. The fine art of comedic acting is explored in this class utilizing humorous skits. Students will get to choose a skit from a variety of scenes. They will work in groups and workshop the skits at the end of the class. This would be a great opportunity to delve into a comedic scene and explore timing, delivery, and a few laughs.
