This theatre book is a complete improv curriculum program divided into twenty class-length workshops. Each workshop contains carefully selected exercises designed to help students focus on one aspect of a character's personality. Students learn how to create characters from their own imaginations through the use of solo and ensemble pantomime, physicalization, vocal techniques, props, and more. Gestures, facial expressions, voice, and body language are studied in isolation. Many ensemble sketches are included. Also includes a class syllabus and guidelines, a character outline sheet to duplicate, character examples, and a recommended reading list.

About the Author:

B. (Brie) Stewart Jones academically has an M.A. in behavioral science from California State University at Dominguez Hills. Artistically, she has performed professionally on the stage since childhood in the United States and later in Europe. She financed her way through Los Angeles City College drama classes by portraying Mad Agnes and playing in olio skits at the long-running stage show, The Drunkard. Her television credits include, among others, several appearances on Dragnet, where Jack Webb became impressed with her work and paid for her wedding.


In combining the two disciplines, behavioral science and theatre arts, she has conducted workshops for all ages in dramatic interaction. Improvisation is her favorite form of acting--on stage and off.
