Learn how to create scenes based on audience suggestions, how to develop characters, and how to say "yes, and" to your scene partners. No prior experience in improv or theatre is necessary or expected. Many of our level 1 students have never before been on a stage! Our level 1 class is designed to help people feel comfortable on stage, learn the basics, make some new friends, and have fun!

All classes at the HIT are nonrefundable.
