    On May 20th from 6:00-8:00 pm CST we will be doing a very comedy/social event with The Second City. The Second City is a world-renown improv and sketch comedy training center, operating in Chicago and Toronto for over 60 years. Their Alumni include folks like Amber Ruffin, Gilda Radner,  Amy Poehler, Bill Murray, Keegan-Michael Key... and the list goes on!

    We don't want to give away everything about our session, but I will say that it will be highly interactive, and probably be the most fun you've had on Zoom. And, don't worry, you won't have to sing, juggle, or showcase your "tight-five" standup routine!

    NSBA President, Hon. Megan E. Goldish

She began studying improv in earnest after moving to Chicago, where she has taken classes at the SCTC, The Annoyance, and iO, but found her home in the form of Music Improv.
