This workshop is designed for young people ages 10-13. Theater games and improv exercises are designed to teach inventiveness, teamwork and group problem solving. Story building, acting out characters and inventing comedy is the name of the game.
For this age sometimes shyness is the first reaction. Introverts are people too! The games and exercises in the curriculum are built to get kids off of their devices and interacting with each other in a fun, supportive, inventive and creative way. Goofiness is highly encouraged.
After a week of learning to do improv you’ll get to watch the students perform in a live original improv show at 2pm on the Saturday following the workshop. (2 tickets per student, more tickets are $10 each.) Students should arrive at 1pm on the day of performance to warm up. Families can enjoy a snack at the Hardware Bar in the Gallery Room.
Our teachers Ruthie Trovato, Brendan O’Brien and Harry Fahrer are experienced educators and professional improv performers. You can read about them here.
The cost of the Workshop Week is $395. It includes M-F 9am-1pm instruction and Saturday 2pm show. Also included are two tickets for family and friends (each subsequent ticket is $10.) Tee shirt and stickers of course.
