The Tower Monday Club

A Beginner’s Improvisation Course and Art of Acting classes.

Every Monday evening from 9th May

Want to keep your acting muscles moving? Learn new techniques? See if acting is for you? Or just have fun? Then check out our new Monday Club! Open to both members and non-members we’ll be running a class or course every Monday.

Our Summer Season programme will consist of two strands on alternate Mondays – a Beginner’s Improvisation Course and Art of Acting classes. More details are below – advance booking is essential. 


Beginner’s Improvisation Course 

This 6-week course will take you from having no experience of improvisation at all to improvising a scene from scratch, and playing some classic short-form improvisation games.  It is perfect for anyone completely new to improvisation, or if you have done some improvisation before and would like a refresher.  This type of improvisation will lean heavily towards the comic, but the skills are just as transferable for dramatic work too.

You will learn the five competencies of improvisation (Initiating, Agreeing, Listening, Supporting, and Committing) with clear and actionable improvisation skills to practice such as ‘Giving Gifts’, saying ‘Yes, and…’ and establishing the ‘Who, What, and Where’.  But it will also just be a whole load of fun so there’s that too!  Each week will build upon the last so please do make sure you can attend all or most of the available dates so you don’t miss out.

Course Dates

The course will run on alternate Mondays from 7.00 – 9.00 in the Tuerk Room. Participants are expected to attend all or most dates to get the most out of the course. 
20th June
4th July
18th July

Course tutor

Jonathan Reed has performed improvisation across London since 2015 with ‘Live Wired Comedy Improvisation’ and at the Free Association, and has learnt from some incredible improvisers from London and Chicago along the way.  He is a member of the Tower Theatre. 

Cost:  Free for Tower Company Members / £12.50 for Friends of the Tower / £25 for non-members for the whole course.
