You'll walk away with a better understanding of the fundamentals of 'Yes, And,' how to support scene partners' ideas and energy, and how to make strong character choices. Absolutely no experience in acting or comedy is needed. The Push Comedy Theater strives to create a fun, safe and supportive experience for all students.
