Improv 101 with The Second City

The Arts Partnership is offering a class in improvisation with the comedy group The Second City. The Second City’s Improv 101 focuses on teaching the building blocks of improvisation to students with little to no experience as they have a great time learning and playing with the touring company members.

This class is open to students in grades 9-12. Space is limited to the first 10 participants. The workshop will be held 1:30 – 3:30 pm Saturday, January 28 at Marathon Center for the Performing Arts (200 W. Main Cross St.). Please register by Monday, January 23.

The cost to attend this workshop is $30. To register for this workshop, visit this page or contact Education Director Craig VanRentgerherm at or by calling 419-422-3412 extension 3.
