Tell me about the course
Some people love learning and practicing impro skills as an end in itself. However, you may find that you wish to take it a step further and actually perform in front of an audience! If so, then this is the course for you.

The course runs one evening a week for seven weeks.

For weeks 1 to 7 you will learn new games and skills. You will be coached, not only in the techniques involved in making the games work, but also in the stagecraft necessary to bring them to performance standards.

In week 8 you will perform in front of an invited audience of your friends in an hour-long show, compered by one of your teachers.

Who are our teachers?
There will be TWO tutors - both regular performers and both experienced teachers who are used to teaching everyone from students at drama school, to trainee GPs and computer programmers. They are experts in providing a safe and relaxed atmosphere in which to learn, experiment and have fun.

One of these teachers will compere your final week show.

Group Size
The group size is limited to 16 people so you will be guaranteed to get plenty of practice and performance time.

Quotes from some of our past students

"Sprout Ideas' teachers slowly build your confidence over the duration so that by the time the final performance arrived we were all buzzing with energy and raring to go. The skills I learnt during that time has really helped me in the 'real world' - I've found it a
bit easier to think on my feet and I don't find big challenges as daunting any more.
I'd recommend any of Sprout's courses to someone who wants to try something different and improve their life skills."

Adam Williams

"A phenomenal experience ... great set-up, training and the opportunity to perform was fantastic ... All supported by the Sprout Ideas team. Massive thank you to Dave and
the team. Recommended!"
