You're an actor. You know you're going to have to do it sometime, but the very thought chills your blood, makes your palms go sweaty, and your voice squeak. It's improvisation - and for many actors it's a nightmare. Greg Atkins, a member of South Coast Repertory and unabashed improviser, takes the fear out of improv. This friendly, informative book looks at the reasons many actors hate improvisation, while quietly reinforcing the reasons improv is a vital part of acting and of theatre. He offers sensible (and fun!) exercises that can be used by teachers or by actors, to build up the mental agility that is so much a part of improvisation, and that should be part of every actor's arsenal.

Greg Atkins has taught improvisation at the Tony Award-winning South Coast Repertory Theatre and the Los Angeles Music Center. He has created, directed, and performed with the improvisational comedy team Nobody's Fools and has been associated with numerous other improv groups. In addition, Greg has acted in numerous stage and television shows, directed more than thirty plays, and is a published playwright currently writing live stage shows for the Walt Disney company.
