Neal Leaheey

Neal Leaheey is one of the principal instructors for the Rhode Island Interscholastic Improv League. The League has courses available to help high school students learn about improvised theater and narrative while also linking to Common Core standards in their curriculum. Participating schools then become able to perform with each other in a generous and sporting competitive format. Any fees are generally negotiable and usually free for schools and students. One-time trial workshops are also available.
