What is the LPNSImprov Show all about??
It is a unique comedy experience that incorporates the "Makin’ a Movie" LPN Studios Improvisation Format ... and a brief prepared opening act.
What is the Makin’ a Movie format??
It is a spontaneous full blown performance with wardrobe and props from an actual treasure chest, yet it's 100% on the fly.
The cast are literally writing, directing, costume designing, set designing, editing.......
oh AND acting 3 live short movies per show!
* LPNSImprov members create ambiance and environment
* Players present fleshed out, truthful performances
* High comedy with seriously grounded characters
* The performers are “writing” a script, live right before your eyes
* It is so smart it will seem scripted …. but IT'S NOT!!!
* Without blatant exposition, we take you into our movie
There are at least 100 characters at the fingertips of this cast
You will meet at least 20 in every show!
Some of these characters could carry a lead in a movie franchise.
Some have in fact made it to network television.
This show offers an opportunity for you to travel anywhere in the world
(or even out of this world), with this kooky, skilled and gifted cast
...you decide where!

LPNSImprov has been developed and cultivated over the years into what you will be seeing in this live series, running now for 5 years. It started as an opening exercise in Lauren Patrice Nadler’s scene study class, born out of a desire to incorporate all the necessary tools an actor needs in order to go out into the world of acting with fleshed out, fully embodied, head to toe, walking and talking, multitasking performances, in any genre.
It can only be explained by witnessing it.
Truly a method, when brought to its highest level can expand any actor seeking growth, in ways that are limitless. Rooted in truth, actors are encouraged to commit and push the envelope making the unbelievable believable, and have a whole a lot of fun doing it.
On the streets, out in the real world, they might get arrested for some bad behavior ....
here we reward it!!!
LPN Studios is where you find diverse talent at its best. The Makin’ a Movie format is taught solely at
LPN Studios by Lauren Patrice Nadler,
and now one of the shows stars, Micky Shiloah, co-teaches this technique to our teens.
Catering to the dynamic, creative and daring actor, who aspires to be great!
