Summer Improv Camps
for Kids & Teens

Brand new for the summer!

Arcade Comedy Theater is partnering with our neighbors Pittsburgh Public Theater for summer improv comedy sessions for kids and teens! Pittsburgh Public Theater will be presenting the classes at their facilities as part of their summer sessions with Arcade instructors there to teach awesome improv skills.

About Arcade’s Improv Comedy Sessions

Campers will spend this half-day morning camp embarking on a journey of spontaneity, creativity, and laughter as we dive into the exciting world of improvisation. This session explores the art of improv comedy with exercises and games helping students create spontaneous stage performances. Students will learn the basic skills of improv including agreement and acceptance, building a story collaboratively, creating imagined environments through “object work”, and generating bold and interesting characters. A crucial skill for any well-rounded performer, improv also allows students practice listening skills, creativity, teamwork, and confidence.
