Improv Drop In Class $5 - 115 Danforth
Starts: 6:00 pm
The Social Capital runs public drop-in improv classes each Saturday (6:00-7:30 PM), across the street from the theatre in our new studio space at 115 Danforth Ave., 2nd floor (entrance between M Nails and Ali Baba’s, south side of Danforth Ave.).

This class is geared towards newer and beginner improvisers. This 90-minute improv class costs $5 each and is led by Ralph MacLeod (Artistic Director and Workshop Director of The Social Capital Theatre) and great guest instructors. There is no experience necessary to take this class and no pre-registration is required. Simply show up and be prepared to have fun! There is no limit on the number of participants in this class.

You will be exposed to simple concepts that lead towards good improv. These concepts (such as the power of saying ‘yes’, being positive, and support) are also helpful in our everyday professional and personal lives. Every Saturday at 6:00 PM.

This is Toronto’s only drop-in improv class in the east end.

Saturdays 6:00–7:30 PM ($5).

****WINNER - FRIGID NEW YORK - AUDIENCE CHOICE AWARD****

From the star of last year’s hit solo show “Drag Queen Stole My Dress”( Montreal Fringe 2014 Best Script Nominee) and the 2013 award winning show “Love in the Time of Time Machines” (Frigid Best of Fest & Audience Choice; Montreal Fringe Best Visual Identity) comes a brand new solo show tackling one of today’s most pressing and talked about issues.

“Get Around Me!” is a heartfelt and hilarious personal account of one woman’s journey into athleticism; and the startling truths she uncovers there.
A powerful story of strength and heartbreak, this is one footy player who won't take her sexual assault lying down!
