Fellow women improvisers,

Here is a totally fun opportunity! Valid Hysteria, a two-year-old all-women’s improv troupe, is looking to expand. We invite women improvisers of all experience levels to come join us at an improv workshop on Sunday, Oct. 5, from noon to 2 p.m. at Gill Park.

Come play with us! This is not a formal audition, but a chance for us to have some fun together and get to know each other better. The workshop will be led by Deanna Moffitt, our long-time director and a very experienced improviser of iO team Revolver, The R&D Project “Silent Treatment” and ComedySportz Portland and Chicago. This is your last chance to work with Deanna for a long time, because she is about to head off for a cruise boat tour. Trust us, she is a fantastic teacher!

What: Valid Hysteria open workshop, with Deanna Moffitt
Where: Gill Park, 825 W. Sheridan Road – corner of Sheridan and Broadway (closest El stop is the Sheridan Red Line.)
When: Sunday, Oct. 5, noon to 2 p.m.
Cost: $7 per person

Please FORWARD this to friends who might be interested!
