Real Deal Testimonials

“Will is the real deal.  He is talented in many ways and he is a genuinely good person.  One of the “rules” of improv is to make the other person/people look good.  Will does that with everyone in the class.  (I just took his first improv class).  The other rules of improv (google them!) are rules to live by and I applaud Will in his work of spreading these positive approaches to life through improv.  I hope to continue to learn from him. -Marilyn L., Psychotherapist, Bala Cynwyd, PA

“I have enjoyed two classes with Will, Storytelling and Intro to Improv. He is wonderful. Will has a unique way of meeting you where you are and moving forward with you. Yes, and he does it with an authenticity, spark and smile that ring true and touch and connect all of us as we are.  Ah, it is fun to be with him and experience his gifts and talent. Take the opportunity!!” -Suzy M., Attorney, Flourtown, PA

“I am a lifelong communicator, an award-winning media producer and public speaker, and comfortable with my platform skills, and yet this class still took my abilities to a new level.” –Pat R., Professional communicator, speaker, author, Philadelphia, PA
“I came out with well more than I bargained for. Anyone who winds up with Will Dennis as a teacher is very lucky indeed. He is a skilled, thoughtful and generous teacher. I especially appreciate the way that Will shows the impact the principles of improv like acceptance and teamwork can have in your everyday life, as well as onstage. I look forward to continuing my education with Unscripted Productions!” -Jack McD., Manager, Learning and Development, Verizon Enterprises, Lansdale, PA
