Improv 401 – “Introduction to The Harold”: Students will take their strong foundation in improvised scenework and learn to attach structure to their scenes for performance by learning “The Harold” – scenic improv’s most famous and widely taught structure. They will build on their understandings of patterns and also learn to perform in scenes with large groups.
(Note: Starting in September 2013 PHIT is switching the curriculums for Improv 301 and Improv 401 – if you previously took Improv 301 when “Introduction to The Harold” was taught you are eligible to take the Improv 401 class which focuses on The Harold, but are also welcome to take the Improv 301 class which focuses on advanced improvisation).
