2014-2015 Academic Dates
Improv season off to exciting start
|Monday, 12 December 2011|
On Thursday, December 8th, Chris Ramelan, the Toronto regional director of the National Improv Games, worked with the players here at the School, providing new strategies to use in each of the events. The players learned more about staging and structuring a scene, developing theme and balancing narrative with dialogue.
Then, on Friday, the team traveled to Kingston to participate in the annual tournament at Queen’s University. The TCS players were on fire. Each scene was original, interesting and witty. The adjudicators were impressed with the team’s solid foundations and intricate teamwork that were demonstrated so early in the season.
On Saturday, the players enjoyed a full day of workshops organized by the Kingston Regional Improv volunteers. It was a wonderful learning experience and a great opportunity to meet and work with players from 15 other schools. Although exhausted by Saturday night, the team is feeling confident and excited about the season and its potential to be a top place finisher in the playoff games in February.
