Friends of TM

Smart. Theatre. Improvised.

Who is Theatre Momentum? Hailed as "a worthy alternative to what you'll find at improv mainstays such as i.O. or Annoyance," Theatre Momentum strives for work that is theatre that happens to be improvised. For a little about our history, click the About TM tab. Welcome!

IMPROV AS THEATRE Classes

 

Theatre Momentum is starting up a training center!

 

The Improv as Theatre class series will teach you the skills to create realistic plays instantly. To find meaning in every movement and expression. To mine your own personal experience to flesh out your characters. To explore your environment and subtle turns of language and staging that are heavy with meaning. TM also allows performers more stage time to develop characters and dialogue worthy of a scripted play, with actors creating characters they will keep for an entire 45 minute performance.
