Class Description

If comedy is a drama that makes us laugh, sketches are where is all begins! There's nothing more creative and fun than writing sketches. You can paint scenes as surreal as Salvador Dali, or an observational miniature on an aspect of daily life. You can create characters as mad as any of those in a comic or fairy tale. You can put aside premise and pick up another character that is wholly different than the last. In this class, we will stretch our creativity to new ways to create original comedy scenes.

I have taught and directed for CYT Chicago since the Winter of 2009. I have a B.A. in Youth Ministry/Adolescent Studies and a Minor in Music from Judson University in Elgin, IL. I absolutely love CYT and its mission of bridging together the performing arts and the love of Christ! My teaching credits include many improv/comedy classes, including the coach for the 2014 Improvapalooza Champions Aurora team. I also teach drama classes ranging from beginner to advanced scene study, and some voice & musical theater as well. Lead directing credits include Wizard of Oz (CYT Oak Park), Great American Tall Tales (CYT Oak Park), Grimm Fairy Tales (CYT Kane), Oliver (CYT Oak Park), Charlie Brown (CYT Orland/Will), Hairspray (CYT Oak Park), The Music Man (CYT Aurora), Fiddler on the Roof (CYT Kane), Roger's & Hammerstein's Cinderella (CYT Aurora), James & The Giant Peach (CYT Kenosha), and The Music Man (CYT Kenosha). I am so excited to meet your student and work together in telling great stories!
