WORKSHOP: Justifications

Do you ever feel lost or thrown for a loop when your scene partner surprises you? This workshop will help you focus on making those weird moments make sense. Strong justifications will improve your character work by giving perspective and emotional investment in your character's words and actions, and are a great way to support the ideas of your scene partner.

About the Instructor: Melissa Ford

Melissa got her start in scripted theatre, doing school plays from middle school onwards, but made the jump to long-form improv in 2015 and fell in love with the Harold. She has performed with several teams, including Midnight Library, Tiny Town, Tony Stanza, Introduce a Self, Hardly Working, and is a frequent performer on HIT Bits nights. She has also coached the HIT house team Barely Adulting, where she was thrilled to finally make some use of her education degree! Melissa cuts her own hair, because she's not afraid of anything (except heights).
