Library talk to focus on improvisational skills

Sharon Kirk Clifton, an actress, storyteller and author, will present “Improv with Sharon Kirk Clifton” at 2 p.m. Jan. 9 in the meeting room of the Seymour library at 303 W. Second St.

The Seymour woman plans to present ideas for parties, youth groups, club gatherings and icebreakers. Attendees will experience warm-up exercises and games designed to help people speak or perform without practicing or preparing ahead of time.

Clifton has had writing and re-enactment projects sponsored in part by the Indiana Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts. She travels the United States giving performances about various characters that bring together history and the character of the people of the times. Her programs feature true stories of Hoosier and nationally known abolitionists and local slave hunters. She uses her experience to teach others this art.

Registration for this free program is preferred by going to myjclibrary.org/events or by calling the Seymour library at 812-523-4636.

The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Jack-son County Public Library and is open to the public.
