About The Ant Process:

In this advanced program, students will learn Planet Ant’s unique process for creating an original comedy play from improvisation. Participants will be paired with a Planet Ant director who will lead them through this 18 week program.

The Ant Process is broken down into three distinct sections. In the first part of the program you will work on building the strength of your ensemble and fine-tuning your improv skills. Next, your group will begin to mine their improv work for the best scenes and learn to translate them to fully fleshed out scripts as you begin shaping an original one-act play. Finally, your scripts will be put on it's feet and tweaked, culminate in a two weekend run of an original comedy production that you helped create. All participants will split 20% of the box office receipts from the run!
