Explore Improv this summer at Calvin

Improv camp is a fun and exciting way to learn the skills of improvisation. Improv theatre focuses not only on humor, but on how we maneuver our way through our daily lives.


Date, Time, Cost

Young actors, new and experienced, are welcome to join in the fun of creating theatre on the spot. Improv theatre teaches a life lesson that will provide young participants with the support and the environment in which they can grow and nurture curiosity, confidence and talent.

Each day, students will learn one facet of improvisation performance culminating in a public performance. All campers are expected to perform on Friday evening. The middle school participants will perform from 7- 8:30 p.m. and the high school participants from 8:45 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
