Improv for Imbeciles – PA Dramatics

Many people’s first introduction to theatre is panto – not just as audience members but as actors too. But when the festivities come to an end and the January sales are over, where do budding thespians go to further their craft?

Well for anyone based in and around the Liverpool area, Paul Arends has set up Improv for Imbeciles, a weekly improvisation class for beginners or anyone interested in working on their improvisation skills in a fun, no pressure environment, with classes held on Wednesday evenings from 8.30pm through to 9.30pm in Studio 1 of The Arts Bar on Hope Street, right in the heart of the Cultural Quarter.

With a Diploma in Acting from LAMDA, Paul has over thirty years of experience and boundless enthusiasm, buoyed from treading the boards as a riotous panto dame through to an upright governor in The Crucible. He has been heavily involved in the amateur dramatic community in Liverpool for fifteen years, directing and acting with Woolton Drama Group, Thingwall Players, Allerton RADS, and Chelwood Players amongst others.

In addition, Paul has taken four different shows to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and co-wrote the award-winning Tinderella for the Liverpool Fringe in 2018.

Classes will be resuming from Wednesday 6th March 2024 with the target of putting a production together for attendees later in the year.
