Are you ready?
Get ready for immersion in the principles and training methods that make ColdTowne the home of the next big thing. After eleven+ years helping performers hone their craft and realize their potential, we’ve built a national reputation for training the best and brightest long-form, improv comedy talent. Soak it all up in our weekend intensives this Summer!
What should students expect?
In the mornings, we’ll focus on the acting skills we believe reliably create quality scene work: deep listening, honesty, character-driven relationships. In the afternoons, we’ll hone our comedy skills, working on games and heightening, as well as explore organic forms that encourage fast thinking and unconditional support of our ensemble.
Who are the instructors?
The intensives will be taught by a cross-section of our seasoned, award-winning faculty. Class enrollment will be limited to maximize individual instruction and stage time. Each intensive will conclude with a final class performance.
Social stuff? Yes’m!
All students will receive a free pass to all shows during their intensive enrollment and are encouraged to hang with the other students and performers at the theater.
Is it for me?
Whether you’re relatively new to the game, or looking to brush up on years of experience, you’ll walk away with new tools for your tool belt, a sharpened comedic sense and fun memories to spare.
We’ve built a national reputation for training the best and brightest improvisers in the South and our Summer intensives provide a great opportunity to hang in Austin, swim in Barton Springs and uplevel your improv skills by learning the ColdTowne approach. A minimum of one year of performance or training experience is required, and graduates of other programs are welcome.
