Boutique Theatre Basel Improv with Susan Brownfield and Jennifer Cain

Broadcast on: 
8 February, 2022

Our friends Susan Brownfield and Jennifer Cain from Boutique Theatre Basel joined us in the studio to bring us up to date with activities at the theater company. A collaboration project between Susan and Richard Brown, the theater company was founded to promote English musical theater productions and has in recent years expanded into classes and improv. Jennifer, a graduate of the world famous Second City improv training program and currently in Second City's Conservatory program, is leading the improv instruction at Boutique Theatre Basel. On offer are programs for complete beginners to those with experience and an opportunity to practice and perform. In addition, the team have lined up performances for improv participants at the Auld Dubliner in Basel and are also doing "improv jams" for those looking to sharpen their skills in an on-line or live format. Listen to the interview here.
