D&D Improv [Dramatists]

D&D Improv: Dramatists

Harness the popular role-playing game D&D to form a new kind of ensemble: the Adventuring Improv Party!  Instead of retelling an already-existing story, we customize each adventure for maximum creativity and theatrical challenge! 

Actors will create bold characters, overcome obstacles, and make strategic and innovative choices on the spot as they use long-form improvisation as a storytelling tool. 

Each class will feed into the next, in an ongoing original story that encourages actors to work together both as characters and as collaborators designing an expansive story — their own epic adventure!

I was having a tough time before camp — my friends weren’t talking to me, I was totally disconnected. Then I came [to Traveling Players…] I don’t know how I made connections over a Zoom room, but I have, and I love how this has taught me how an ensemble and how a community works.
