2018-2019 Dad's Garage

Murder, She Improvised

Dad's Garage

Murder, She Improvised

Dad's Garage

July 19 – 20

Improv troupe Dad's Garage (Atlanta, GA) is staying after the 11th Annual Sarasota Improv Festival with performances and workshops!

The long-running Dad's Garage mystery format, Murder, She Improvised, comes to Sarasota July 19 and 20. A heinous murder has been committed at the top of the show. The list of suspects is ridiculous, and our Detective will have only their wits, along with the audience’s (somewhat) helpful suggestions, to help solve the murder! Can they do it?? Probably not, but don’t ask us who did it… it’s entirely improvised! 


Caring About Stuff! 

Tuesday, July 16 6-9PM
In life, we constantly have feelings about what we want to do, things we want to keep and words that we just can't wait to say. But sometimes when we are improvising we find ourselves marooned on stage, not sure what to say or what to do, we are just lost. This workshop gives you the tools to combat those uncertain moments by caring about something in your scene work, making it as effortless as living your life.

Makin’ It Worse

Wednesday, July 17 6-9PM
Fee: $45/class or $120 for all three.

Pour fuel on the fire of your scene work with "Make It Worse," a three hour workshop about the art of exacerbation. Learn how leaning into conflict and celebrating obstacles can give your improv a fresh, fearless perspective. 

Intro to Narrative Structure

Thursday, July 18 6-9PM
Fee: $45/class or $120 for all three. 

When we’re first exploring narrative as improvisers, our stories frequently start off on the wrong foot, get sidetracked or lost or are just dead on arrival. This workshop will teach you the basics of Johnstonian narrative structure to help you establish solid story platforms, introduce fun & effective tilts and create stories collaboratively that will have both the players and the audience loving the fun narrative roller coaster!
