Monkey around with the pros! The Comedy Arena presents it's Summer Camp series for the young and aspiring jokesters. Camp goers will learn to support their peers, make big choices, and play on stage without any plans. Using improvisation, slapstick, sketch and more, we will develop our funny bones and learn the tricks of the trade which will be shared with family and friends on the last day of camp in a comedy showcase. This final performance will be 100% original, starring the creative and comedic talents of our young ensembles.
Improv & Acting Summer Camp
Our camp programming includes the Basics of Improv, how to “Yes, And”, Scene work, creating characters, stage presence and the introduction to short-form improv-style game play.
Our camp counsellors are all experienced teachers and improv instructors. In addition to enjoying daily games and practices with their group instructor, campers will meet with our Comedy Arena All Star specialists every day to learn specialized skills such as character building, scene work and the power of, "yes and."
The campers are divided into groups, or teams, based on the grade they will be entering for the upcoming school year.
• Team 1 (4th-6th Graders) • Team 2 (7th-9th Graders) • Team 3 (10th -11th Graders)
At the end of the week, campers will perform in a show, just like the professionals, for friends and family (this showcase is an additional ticket).
