Classes start with proven improvisation exercises used by the most accomplished actors for vocal and physical warmups. Classes feature improvisation exercises created at Second City and Improv Olympia, as well as professional acting instruction. Students will learn to read scripts out loud and perform onstage with other cast members. They'll also be invited to observe our Summer Company of actors and tech crew as they prepare for our summer production of "Charlotte's Web".

The summer culminates in a showcase celebrating your young actor's new found talents. So we can provide individualized attention to each student, class size is very limited, so please enroll early.
