We have taken inspiration from our intergenerational improvisation workshop series that ran at Hillside earlier this year and created a workshop with five games that EVERYONE can PLAY. Whether you are coming together, in-person or online, or a combination of both, these games are easily adaptable and playable anywhere! So why don’t you join us for some Improv fun?
