Now that you have a basic understanding of game of the scene, it's time to take that and put it into the granddaddy of all along forms: the Harold. Created by the late, great Del Close, The Harold has since become the signature form of the Upright Citizens Brigade. This is the final class in this track before students are eligible to audition for HIT Harold teams.
