Aging Well with Friends spent a morning at the IMPROV with Bridget Cavaiola of the Baltimore Improv Group, whose home is the Mercury Theater at 1823 N. Charles Street in Baltimore, MD 21201. Bridget led us through a series of exercises leading to impromptu skits.
Participants were of all ages and conditions from very athletic young people to an elder in a wheelchair. Bridget started by having us learn each other’s names through movement and paired us up in random groups based on the alphabet or numbers. The final skit was a cartoon face drawn by two people taking turns. Then we had to name the face and describe the character behind the face by turns, without being able to talk to each other first. The results were hilarious!
