Improv For Everyone: Communications & Creativity

This fast-paced, engaging highly interactive performance features all the entertainment value of a professional comedy show while fostering important curricular discoveries throughout the journey. Students take the stage alongside the ImprovBoston cast for an unforgettable hour of supported risk-taking.
