In this 4-week class, students will learn the classic, simple format of the structured Harold.  This format, much looser when it was originated by The Committee in San Francisco, found more structure as Del Close continued working with it in Chicago.  Students will explore different schools of improv play, within the specific rules of this format, which lift up both ensemble work and scene work.  Improvisers with no previous Harold experience, as well as improvisers who want to explore how this format translates to online play, are welcome!

What People Are Saying:

  • You need to know how to teach to make a difference, and she surely does.

    —Irv Levinson

  • She creates the most fun and interactive environment that makes you actually forget you're on a computer alone in your room and are instead transported to a room full of laughter and games or stories with friends.


  • Amanda is an amazing improv teacher. Her enthusiasm and performance experience shine through in her teaching, enabling her to help students make huge improvements in their skills while having loads of fun.


  • There's a certain level of anxiety when taking an improv class. Amanda gets rid of the "fear of the unknown" with her Southern hospitality and charm. Come in nervous, leave with a great friend and coach. I can't wait to take a class with her in person.
