In the Wings: One Size Fits All summer workshop graduation show. Meet Nick Masters.
For the first time in more than five years, One Size Fits All has been holding summer workshops to teach improvisation skills and performance techniques including pantomime, gibberish, characterization and scene work.
Now after several weeks of work, the students are prepared for their graduation – a full-format improv show at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. Nick Masters is one of those students.
Question: What was your first exposure to One Size Fits All?
Nick: I saw a show years ago with Steve Martin and Laurie Russell.
Q: Why did you take the workshop?
N.M.: It was better than anything else I could have been doing on Saturdays.
Q: What is something surprising you discovered during the workshop?
N.M.: The lack of thought you have to put into anything.
Q: What makes you laugh?
N.M.: Real-life events, real things that just happen on accident.
Q: When you aren't doing improv, what do you do?
N.M.: I'm a programmer.
Q: What is your favorite game?
N.M.: I like both Five Things and Chain-Death-Murder.
Q: What question are you glad I didn't ask?
