Each camp explores a specific theme, but all have in common an emphasis on creativity, flexibility, collaboration and fun. Our teaching artists are regulars on the ColdTowne stage who bring a wealth of enthusiasm and knowledge to the classroom.

Improvised Villains – Early Elementary
July 17 – 21
July 23rd performance
In real life, we follow the rules and lend a hand. But this is comedy! This week we create characters and explore comedy inspired by the bad guys. What does the Big Bad Wolf buy his mother for her birthday? How does an apprentice villain create a signature phrase? It’s all in good fun and heroes are welcome to appear. Just a note, even though we’ll be creating villains, the week is primarily about the usual Improv lessons – listening, respecting fellow players and having fun! Real villains need not apply.
