Flagstaff Arts Council is pleased to present another series of Improvisational Comedy Workshops with Garrison Garcia, taking place in weekly sessions on Tuesdays between March 1 and April 5, 2016. The workshop will be held at the Coconino Center for the Arts, at 6:00 – 8:00 p.m each Tuesday, culminating with a performance on Tuesday, April 12, at 7:00 p.m.

Participants in these workshops will learn the basics of listening, agreement and teamwork through the introduction of short form games. In sessions, students will focus on the exploration of characters, environments and organic openings. The last two weeks will teach long form principles, and prepare students for the stage. The workshops are designed for all levels of experience and skill.

Garrison GrantInstructor Garrison Garcia has been silly all his life, and after giving improv comedy a try, he realized how silly EVERYONE can be. Most recently, he’s been performing with Northern Arizona University’s improv group, NAUghty Bits. Garrison is the founder and director of Flagstaff Foundry, a monthly community variety show hosted at The Circus Arts Studio, and he’s the founding member of Tiny Punches, the Circus Arts Studio house improv team. He firmly believes that anyone can do improv, and enjoys working with first timers as much as seasoned pros.

The Improvisational Comedy Workshops are for adults over 18. Registration for the full six week course is $125. Participants can register and pay online. For more information or questions, call 928-779-2300.
