About the Teacher: Andrea Irving began as a student at Lancaster Improv Players in January 2020. She has since taken lots of classes at LIP and currently performs in “Taylor’s Book Club”. Andrea works as an engineer and wrote a short bio.

Covid Policy: we are doing a tiered Covid response based on the transmission levels provided by the CDC for Lancaster.

 

During high transmission we are reducing audience capacity to 50% (15 people) and require either proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test from the past 72 hours. Photos or a physical copy are fine. We will also ask for photo ID to verify the proof of vaccination. For performers and students, we will be requiring everyone is vaccinated while we are in high. You should bring a physical copy or picture of your vaccination card.

As of 6/20 when this Eventbrite was created we are in such territory that we are not currently observing any restrictions. If we go back to substantial or high we will observe above.

Notice that ticket sales end 3 hours before the class starts.

Improv 201 with Taylor

Welcome to Lancaster Improv Players’ 201 class! This 8-week long course focuses on the more advanced skills of long-form Improv. Students will learn skills which include game of a scene, second beats, heightening, and advanced character work. This class focuses on teaching a ton of scene work skills and will help improvisers think beyond the scene they are in. The class ends with a graduation show where the students can show their friends and family the skills learned. This class does require Improv 101 as a prerequisite or director approval.

This class runs Sundays 2:30pm to 5pm on the dates 7/10, 7/17, 7/24, 7/31, 8/7, 8/14, 8/21, and 8/28. There will be a class show following the final session of the class at a to be determined date.

About the teacher: Taylor started improvising her freshman year of college when a couple of weird guys stopped her at the Club Fair with a sign that read “Do you like Whose Line Is It Anyway?”. Since then, she’s been hooked. Joining LIP with this very same 101 class in 2019, she now performs with two of LIP’s house teams and also anytime someone will let her. Her favorite thing about improv is that it’s a designated time in her week to get silly and be playful! She believes that anyone can do improv and that it’s a bit of a cure-all for life’s problems… Want to public speak with more confidence? Improv. Want to make new friends? Improv. Awkward on dates? Improv. Looking to finally beat your dad to the punch line of a dad joke? Improv.

If we go down to substantial and stay there for at least one week, we will no longer require proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test, but audience capacity will be increased to 75% (22 people). Performers and students no longer need proof of vaccination.

If we go down to moderate/medium and stay there for at least one week, we will go back to 100% capacity.

As of 6/8 when this Eventbrite was created we are in such territory that we are not observing any restrictions. If we go back to substantial or high we will observe above.
