Popular Performer Brings His Hit Workshop to Velma Teague Library
Glendale, Arizona- Calling all class clowns, future actors and tweens who just want to have fun! Nationally recognized improv comedy performer and instructor Sean ‘Hoylarious’ Hoy is bringing his shtick to the Velma Teague Library, 7010 N 58th Ave., Glendale, on Thursday, April 20 at 6:30 pm. The program is free and open to tweens (ages 8 to 12) but requires registration at glendaleaz.evanced.info/signup/Calendar.
Hoy is an expert at teaching audiences of all ages how to exercise their funny bones and creativity muscles. During this fun-filled program, he will cover the basics of using humor as a tool, acting and stage presence, the importance of listening and observation, and functioning as a team member in an improv comedy.
“Improv is a great way for kids to brush up on communication skills including being able to ‘think on their feet,’” said senior library assistant Janet Loyd. “Just learning the improv trick of reading and using social cues like facial expression, body language, and tone of voice really helps kids understand how and when to express themselves!”
Youth Improv @ the Teague is part of the Express Yourself grant, supported by the Arizona State Library, Archives & Public Records, a division of the Secretary of State, with federal funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. For questions and/or special accommodations, please call 623-930-3437.
