Monday - Friday, 9AM to 3PM June 29th - July 3rd
Our Yes and! Kids & Teens comedy camp creates a safe space for students to develop their creativity and comedic talent while making new friends and sharing lots of laughs. This program will teach acting and long-form improvisation skills, and immerse participants in a range of acting techniques, and in the process of creating a character from scratch! Actors will work as an acting ensemble and be facilitated by director, Amy Poux, as well as veteran Youth Ensemble Theater members in the games, characters, and inventive situations that they enact. The week will culminate in a showcase for friends and family.
