An Evening of Improv
We will be led by members of the Florida Studio Theater Improv group. They will introduce us to the art of Improv and then we will break into groups to create our own skits. This should provide a fun way to connect with other alumni in the area.
The event is free, but we suggest a $5 donation to FST to help the organization during these difficult times.
Zoom link and donation information will be emailed after registration and to attendees prior to the event.
The museum will be using their system to register all attendees.
