Join us for a week of improvised awesome! This camp is for rising 9th-12th graders.

Camp culminates in a showcase on Friday at 1:30 p.m., where you will get to perform for friends and family to show off what you’ve learned!

Q: Do I need any previous experience in theater or improv to attend?
A: Nope! This camp is for students of all levels of experience—including none!
Q: Will I be in a group with my friends?
A: All campers will be together in one space for the duration of the camp!
Q: I don’t consider myself “funny” or “clever.” Is this camp for me?
A: Absolutely! Funny is not a goal; it’s an inevitable side effect of letting go and being yourself! One of
the first things you’ll learn is “Don’t be clever!” Improv is about listening and responding honestly. It’s
about being in the moment and connecting with your scene partners. Comedy is truth’s shadow. The
laughter will come when you least expect it!
Q: I’ve heard improv has benefits for my day-to-day life outside of performing. Is this true?
A: Yes! The skills that make a good improviser also make a happier, healthier, more well-balanced
person! Listening, confidence, mindfulness, team work, and thinking on your feet are just some of the
many skills improv strengthens. Improv celebrates the awesomeness that is you, exactly as you are, and helps you be the best, most joyful version of yourself!
Q: This sounds like so much fun, but I’m a grown-up! Can I stay and watch?
A: In order to create a safe, supportive, non-judgmental space for the campers to feel comfortable
letting loose and being silly, we do not permit an “audience” to observe our classes. However, there will
be a showcase at the end of the week for you to attend to see your campers put their skills into action
on stage! And if you want to take classes yourself, Third Coast has a whole series of adult classes that
you can sign up for HERE
