After our first exciting year bringing improv to nearly 100 students we are excited to expand out Improv Program at the Neptune Theatre School. Under the helm of the Director of Education (Second City Educated Laura Caswell), and Halifax's Leading Improvisers (Liam Fair and Bethany Dunn of "Hello City", and Adrianne Gagnon of "Mission Critical Comedy"), this is the perfect place for you to do three things: 


1. Begin your journey to becoming an improviser

2. Build on your skills, break out of your shell and gain confidence

3. Take it to the next level; intense performative training
