Curtain to Rise April 9 for Plaza Playhouse Theater Improv Workshop

Now in its second year, Plaza Playhouse Theater’s popular Improv Workshop will begin its fourth eight-week session on April 9, according to Asa Olsson, workshop facilitator and president and artistic director of Carpinteria’s community theater.

Held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, the class is suited to anyone who has the urge to perform more freely in any part of their life. The last session, on May 28, will be a showcase open to the public.

“In a hands-on workshop environment, and on stage, participants will hone their ability to think quickly on their feet,” noted Olsson, an accomplished actress, director and drama coach.

Along with the basics of improv and fundamental acting techniques, these classes will include theater games, scene study, monologue work, breathing techniques and letting go of inhibitions. Enrollment is limited to 20 participants and is on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The workshop fee is $96 and may be paid online by clicking here, or by mailing a check to Plaza Playhouse Theater, ATTN: Improv Class, 4916 Carpinteria Ave., Carpinteria 93013.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
