JUNIOR IMPROV SUMMER CAMP 8 - 11YRS & 12-16YRS AUG 2020 - The Courtyard Playhouse The Courtyard Playhouse


Sign your child up for our Improv Summer Camp for young improvisors and let them experience the wonderful world of improvisation! It's a fast-paced, exciting week of theatre where performers aged 8-11 & 12-16 can explore the different styles of improv that dominate the writing, acting and comedy worlds today.

Improvisation has been popularised by the TV show Whose Line is it Anyway? and is a skill learned by performers, teachers, business managers, creative experts and children all around the world. It’s also a lot of fun! Your child will be taught by qualified teachers with a wealth of experience of teaching children of all ages and abilities.

Our Summer camp caters for all levels of improvisor, from beginners to more experienced players. Together we’ll learn and refine performance skills by playing drama games, doing scene work and exploring a variety of improv exercises that unleash children’s natural creativity and humour. It will be a week filled with self-expression and spontaneity, where children will learn to be better listeners and storytellers – skills they can take back to school after the holidays are over.

We’ll explore characterisation, stagecraft and storytelling, all inspired by our imaginations, and in a thrilling finale to the week, we’ll end with a showcase, performed by our Young Improvisers for friends and family.

Improv is a great way to become a better risk-taker and increase self-confidence, as well as being a wonderful introduction to theatre and performance.

'Improv at the Courtyard Playhouse is the best thing that’s happened to me. Improv has huge benefits on my life as a teen. I strongly advise improv workshops for anyone who enjoys or is looking to take drama in their schooling career as it gives you an edge to devising and using techniques during class time. Also, improv helps boost confidence, which is massively important as a teen.'
