Improv workshop offered over school vacation

The Jamestown library will offer an workshop on improvisation for 10to 14-year-olds on Thursday, Feb. 23, from 1to 2 p.m. Conducted by Keith Munslow, the workshop is about making it up as you go. It will feature a mix of theatrical warmups and comedy improv games like those performed on “Whose Line Is It Anyway?”

As a performer, Munslow has entertained thousands of people at shows throughout New England and beyond. For the past seven years, he has performed as a storyteller, musician, and cartoonist at schools, libraries, and festivals. A longtime member of Big Nazo Puppets, he also served for 10 years as the in-house composer for Perishable Theatre’s “Shows for Young Audiences” series. He currently teaches performance at Rhode Island School of Design’s young artist program. Munslow is a longtime member of the board of directors of local Arts Incubator AS220, where he maintains a studio.

Registration for this program begins Thursday, Feb. 9. Visit or call the library to register. Attendance is limited to 20 participants.
