Mopco's Improv Summer Youth Program
Two Sessions: Monday, August 5th - Friday, August 9th
Monday, August 12th - Friday, August 16th
Time: 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
Ages: 14 - 17
This two-week, full-day program offers students a unique opportunity to learn about improvisation and theatre performance basics. Students are guided by professional improvisers in developing their confidence, collaboration, communication, and creative thinking skills.
Students will work at their own ability and experience level with Mopco faculty to learn the skills needed to become an expert improviser. Each day will include improv classes and hands-on work and play with a whole range of theatre-related arts and crafts—puppets, stage sets, lighting, video, and more!
Performance Showcase - Friday, August 16th @ 3:30 pm
The second week of the program will end with a final performance to show off the skills and games students have been working during their time here at Mopco! You are invited to attend and bring along any friends or family who would like to cheer on your performer. The showcase will be from 3:30 pm until 4:30 pm. Lite fare and drinks will be provided.
Whether your child is an aspiring performer or a bit of an introvert, improv helps build the innovators of the future. Students learn to trust their creative instincts, celebrate their unique perspective and develop confidence in their ideas. They'll stretch their performance range and develop stronger speaking and creative thinking skills all in playful, laughter-filled games and exercises. Students will learn to:
Be spontaneous and celebrate creative risk-taking
Work with what's in the moment
Collaborate with confidence and positivity
Be a better storyteller and presenter
