Program Description

Do you love to laugh? Do you love to make people laugh? Over the course of the week, actors will work with professional improvisers to hone their ensemble skills and learn the basics of improvisation and sketch comedy. Students will master multiple improv games they can share with their friends and family! While also learning how to generate ideas, create funny situations and settings, identify absurdities, write and perform their own sketches and bring them to hilarious conclusions. We’ll invite our families and friends to see our performance on Friday afternoon at 2:00pm.
