Level One - Scenework

Our introductory class gives you a hugely enjoyable and strong foundation in the principles of long-form scene work. We'll start with the basic principals of 'Yes, And' and develop your improvisational skills to include strong scenic initiations, space work, the concept of 'game' and many more tools for you to use in the full scenes you'll be creating at the end of term.

Plus! Spotlight members can redeem a 10% discount on their first Level One class with us. Details can be found on the booking page.

Level Two – Basic Long-Form

Level Two takes the work from Level One and builds on those principles with challenging but rewarding work. We develop an arsenal of techniques for improvsiers to get out of their heads, introduce editing methods as well as using monologues for inspiration and background support work. By the end of the course, you'll be performing basic long-form work in small groups in class, it's awesome.


Placement Audition

If you have a lot of improv experience and would like to audition to go straight into Level Two, please email paul@monkeytoast.com to request a place on a free placement audition. These are usually held once per term.

We have a Level Two Class starting on Monday January 13th!

If you'd like to take a spot in that class, or audition for a place, please email us at paul@monkeytoast.co.uk to book.


Level Three – The harold

Level Three builds on the work of Level Two by teaching you the Harold - the foundation of all Chicago-Style longform and the structure that's at the core of most North American sitcoms. You'll learn the structure of the classic comedy structure from start to finish as well as a new show opener, group games and how to handle it when it goes awry - but also, how to have fun with those mistakes.

This Level Three class has a graduation show at the end.


We have a Level Three class starting on Wednesday January 15th - if you'd like to take part, please email paul@monkeytoast.co.uk for the booking link.

Level Two is a required level for this class.

LEVEL FIVE - NARRATIVE CLASS

We'll be offering an 8 week course in Narrative Long Form starting in September.

Please note, this class assumes completion of our Level Four course in Advanced Longform.

If you'd like to be kept informed of this and other advanced classes we have coming up - just sign up to the Advanced Class Mailing List.
