Hone your characters for a show where you’ll take on multiple roles over the course of the performance. Pass the final hurdle on your way to improv domination.

Class will be held in-person unless otherwise noted. Participants will be required to upload proof of vaccination against COVID-19 upon registration.

As of January 30, 2022, all students MUST receive a COVID-19 vaccination booster shot in order to participate in classes.

The health and safety of students and teachers are top priorities at WIT.  Starting March 1, each class will determine whether masks are mandatory or optional in class, through a student and teacher survey.  If everyone in the class agrees, masks will be optional. If even one person requires masks to be mandatory, medical-grade masks (including surgical masks and N-95s) will be required during class.
