Current Term Classes

About Our Classes:

Annoyance's improv training is guided by our Artistic Director, Mick Napier and based on the approach found in his book Improvise. Scene from the Inside Out.

We are known for giving specific, individualized feedback to our students and helping them to develop and maintain a strong individual voice in their improvisation.

Our classes focus on scenic improvisation, that is, we don't focus on performance games, rules of improvisation, or performance styles such as "The Harold".

Through scenework, classes address the beginning, or initiation of a scene; developing and maintaining strong characters; learning to hold on to your initial choices while at the same time, expanding on (heightening) the choices you have made; and learning to become deft at creating and weaving unexpected, character-based choices into your work.

We maintain small class sizes, and all of our teachers are ensemble members who have learned and performed with Annoyance, and thus have first hand experience with the way we approach improvisation at Annoyance.

"I have learned, enjoyed, and been inspired by the instructors at the Annoyance."

- J. Goudy

"I am a student in , and I'm not a theater person, yet my experience has been remarkable --even life-changing ... My teacher is extermely supportive. I never feel stupid or wrong. The class gives me the courage to take risks and expand my behavior into new areas. My lens on the world has changed: many more parts of life than I had thought are just plain funny!"

- P. Novick, PhD.D. Min

"I am always taken back by Mick's candor and vulnerability - he is inspiring to me, because he is himself all the time. No pretenses, no apologies. A whole person. And he is able to be present and be there with you, always trying to help you grow. Always supportive. "

- A. Black

"I have appreciated every minute of class. Some are terrifying, others are joyful. This is a GREAT PROGRAM! Who knows what will happen next, but this has been wonderful. For my first taste of improv, this was the best choice."

- L. Jones

"Your encouragement really helps. I feel that jumping into the scene with a committed emotion makes a huge difference in my confidence."

- B.Kuhn

"You got me out of a pretty significant improv slump. I just want to thank you for putting me in touch with my baby brain. It was a truly joyful and enriching experience."

- S. Grodsky

In this book, Mick Napier (Founder of Annoyance Theatre) offers helpful, tangible guidelines for bringing strength and direction to your improvisation.
