Teen Intensives

About the Intensive

Take a week to work on your improv and acting skills this summer. First we’ll cover the basics of improv acting, so you know how to walk on the stage with nothing and create worlds. Then we will get in there and work with your improv to make it as full and rich as possible. Including playing with character, timing, interactions, reactions, and working together. By the end of the week you’ll be ready to take the stage in our own performance for your friends and family. And blow them away!

Visit our main Improv Summer Camp page for information on camps for younger children.

Teen Intensive Topics

Each of our Teen Intensives will have a special topic, or improv format, that is used to focus the instruction.


July 22-27 – Megan Sherrod – The Shopping Mall Format – this delightful format lets you see all of the interesting characters and happenings that surround a single event.  You’ll work on strong characters, timing and beats for scenes and developing full scenes that work together to make one awesome show.
