Unit III students display their improv skills

Doherty Unit III students had seconds to pose for wacky photos, spring into action in an active volcano, and find ways to avoid a suddenly terrifying classmate. “I focus on improv a lot. I want to make every drama class stand on its own with its creativity and fun,” Lower School creative dramatics teacher Russell White said. He added improv makes the students think more about drama writing and acting than memorizing a script and acting it out. The students practiced their improv skills with a series of games. Students would make suggestions about settings and behaviors, which others would listen to, think about, and act out.
