The Ruby LA Characters & Impressions class is a class for writing and performing solo material! This class combines improvisation and comedy writing techniques to develop funny, three-dimensional, true to life solo characters and impressions monologues. At the end of this class, you will leave with one 3-5 minute piece, and multiple characters in your arsenal.

This class is 6 weeks long and ends with a class show on The Ruby LA stage!
