GREENWOOD LAKE — The Greenwood Lake Public Library will host a four-session comedy improvisation workshop from 6:30-8 p.m. Oct. 18, Oct. 25, Nov. 1 and Nov. 15.
Students will learn the basic rules of improvisation, play group games, and develop original characters and scenes, presented and guided by the Rising City Arts Theatre Group.
Since launching in 2010, Rising City Arts’ mission has been “to offer a unique place to explore and enjoy the art of theater."
Dina Ann Comolli, executive director and co-founder of Rising City Arts, has incorporated a variety of techniques she practiced at Harvard’s American Repertory Theater into the workshop. In the past, Comolli has taught acting for kids with City Lights Youth Theatre, The Academy of Dramatic Arts and The Westchester Conservatory for the Performing Arts, among others.
Off Broadway, she appeared in “The Rise of Dorothy Hale” and regionally she starred in “Twelfth Night” at Summer Theatre of New Canaan and Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival as well as “Mofo with the Hat” at The Kitchen. Some of her TV credits include “Law and Order SVU”, “Fringe,” “I’d Kill for You” and “School Spirits”.
