Workshops are designed for the age group of those attending and provide an opportunity for participants to learn about the art form as well as teamwork, communication and creativity! Groups are not limited to only the younger ones, they can be scout troops at any level, young professional groups or even pods of senior citizens! Generally, workshops are hosted by 3-4 members of UTP and include improv games as well as mini-performances by the company members.
Workshops are capped at 15 participants to allow for lots of participation and scheduling is flexible. Because of the group size and proximity involved in improv, all workshops at this time will take place virtually and have been modified for the Zoom platform.
