Marblehead, Massachusetts- Marblehead Little Theatre is excited to announce its offering of a four class introduction to Improv designed for preteens and teens.

Make new friends in a fun and supportive environment, while building overall confidence! Some of the skills the class covers include expressing emotions, agreement, and creating stories together. Plus, each session will conclude with a performance for family and friends.
