Youth Improv

Every child deserves the opportunity to discover their talents. We have developed Youth Improv as a chance for all children to become comfortable on stage while becoming confident storytellers, actors, and comedians. Your child will spend their time playing improv games and laughing, learning the importance of teamwork, and listening to every performance



Numerous studies have demonstrated a correlation between drama involvement and academic achievement. In addition to having higher standardized test scores than their peers who do not experience the arts, student who participate in drama often experience improved reading comprehension, maintain better attendance records, and stay generally more engaged in school than their non-arts counterparts. Schools with arts-integrated programs, even in low-income areas, report high academic achievement.


Youth Improv is a six-week course that meets once a week. For ages 9-11. Youth Improv sessions are sixty minutes. The class is very popular, and we encourage you to register online, or at the theater before the class begins. We start new classes every two months.
