Workshop FAQ

Frequently asked questions about Impulse Theater improvisational theater workshops.


I'd like to take your next workshop, but my schedule doesn't allow it. What should I do?

Impulse Workshops are ongoing, and new workshop dates are scheduled regularly.

 

I'm worried I'm not funny enough. Is this going to be a problem?

We don't care how funny you are, or aren't. As long as you show up with an open mind and ready to have fun, the 'funny' will take care of itself.

 

Can I take a workshop, but not perform in the final show?

No. Your finale performance will be the most fun and rewarding part of the workshop.

 

How do you compare to other improv classes available in Colorado?

We don't. Impulse Theater has been doing improv, and only improv, for over 20 years. We've been compared to Second City, The Groundlings, Improv Olympic and almost any other nationally renowned improv comedy troupe you can think of. We've done over 5,000 shows at our theater and over 1,000 at other venues. Trust us. We'll take care of you.

Admittedly, there are improv workshops operated by other improv companies in town. If you are trying to make up your mind as to which workshop to attend, we suggest observing the public performances of these other companies and choosing what style you like best.

 

Do you only offer one 6-week workshop?

If, after the first 6-week workshop, you decide you'd like to continue we also offer a Level 2 & Level 3 workshop.

 

Are the workshops a good way to get into the regular cast?

Impulse Theater only recruits new cast members through auditions. That said, Impulse Theater improv workshops are the single best way to prepare for those auditions.

 

When do you hold auditions?

We generally hold auditions twice a year depending on what positions, if any, need to be filled. If you would like to be notified of the next open audition, please call our box office at 303.297.2111 to request to have your name placed on an interest list.

 

Will taking the workshops help my chances in the audition?

Taking our improv workshops will definitely help you prepare for an audition, but there is no special consideration given to those who have taken workshops during the audition process.
