Improv Week

Improv week - ages 10 to 17

Monday - Friday 8:30am - 4:00pm
1-Week Session July 30 - August 3, 2018
Improv Week

Students participating in this one week workshop get a fun-filled and intensive introduction to the wacky world of Improv. Through participation in a variety of classes and rehearsals, students will explore this most spontaneous art of acting in an ensemble environment.

Classes include Acting, Dance, Voice, Masks and more — all taught with an emphasis on the improvisational aspects of these disciplines. Rehearsals are filled with Improv exercises and games, taking time to learn and incorporate Improv Technique. All classes and rehearsals focus on group dynamics, making quick acting choices and following each unique creative impulse to the fullest.

Included in this week is an exciting late night event — the NYC improv troupe, Chicago City Limits, will come to camp and workshop with our students. Students will stay at camp for dinner and to see Chicago City Limits perform in our very own theatre.

At the end of their week at PGT, students put together all they have learned in an informal “Improv Night” presentation.

Our “one-weekers” are fully absorbed into the life of PGT Summer, joining in all social activities and special events which take place during this week.
