Youth Summer

Prerequisite: Grades K-12th (age group varies by class); no improv experience required
Schedule: Varies by class
Class length: Varies by class
Class size: Varies by class
Tuition: Varies by class

Our youth classes provide individual attention from experienced coaches who have worked with youth and teen improvisers for many years. Students explore the concepts and skills of improv through games and exercises, and most classes culminate in a showcase performance for family and friends. All classes are held in our professional performing space — the 200-seat Bayfront Theater.

Note: Our youth and teen classes are very popular and often sell out, especially the summer sessions, so we strongly encourage you to register early.
