Weekly Improv Class Offered For High School Students

29 Jan , 2018  

The Renaissance Education Department announces that it will again offer its Improv Underground program, a free theatre improvisation course. Improv Underground classes focus on building basic improv skills through group activities, and are open to all students between the ages of 14 and 19. Students are guaranteed to gain self-confidence, improve communication skills, and have fun. 

All classes take place at the Renaissance Theatre in Mansfield from 4-5:30 on Wednesdays. The course begins on February 7th and will run through April 4th.  An “open mic” style performance, featuring class participants, will be held on Thursday evening, April 5th.  The course is led by Dauphne Maloney, well-known throughout the area for her work with youth theatre, with help from Renaissance Artistic Director Michael Thomas, a former Second City improv troupe member.

Interested participants can register online at or by emailing [email protected]. For more information on this program or other Renaissance Education programs, contact the Education Department at 419-522-2726, ext. 212 or visit
