Getting Into Character with Alison Gates

Want to learn to generate characters and get laughs simply by committing to who they are? In this workshop, we'll use tricks and techniques -- from physicality to point of view -- to unlock grounded, layered, fun characters from within. Whether they are big and goofy or just a few degrees from yourself, characters can help show you how to navigate scenes, give you inspiration for solo material, and leave your teammates with choices they'll love to call back.

Alison Gates has performed with the Second City National Touring Company, Virgin Daiquiri (iO Chicago), Trigger Happy (Annoyance Theater), and more. She has trained with the best of them, and has led improv workshops all over the country. Come hang out with her!
