Improv for Kids and Teens!
In collaboration with children’s storytelling program Move Your Tale, ColdTowne Theater offers improv classes, camps and performances for youth.
Improv builds confidence and communication skills while encouraging collaboration and creativity. As our program grows, we are able to expand the number and the type of classes we offer. At present, registration and class descriptions are still located at the Move Your Tale website: www.moveyourtale.com
Performances for Youth
Teen Improv Night
Our next Teen Improv Night is October 7th and features Teen troupe Four Stories Tall and adult troupe Journey to the Big Water.
The first Sunday of every month, we turn the theater over to performers and audience members between 10 and 18. Each Teen Improv Night features an all teen improv troupe and a local adult improv troupe performing material appropriate for an 18 and under audience. Following these shows, audience members and performers are invited to join us onstage for an open improv jam. This is a great opportunity to see improv performed by peers, by experienced, trained improvisers, and then to give it a try yourself! 5:00 to 7:00, the first Sunday of each month. Pay what you want. Parents are totally welcome!
What’s the Story Steve?
A fully improvised theatrical journey through tales of the audience’s making! This hilarious, high energy production invites audience members to help make the stories happen or to just sit back and enjoy the ride! A great, theatrical way to spend a Saturday morning.
WTSS? features a cast of experienced adult performers, including Steve the improvising poodle. Pay what you want. Appropriate for audiences of all ages, but often most enjoyed by those 3 to 12.
What brought Move Your Tale and ColdTowne together? Storytelling and Improvisation naturally complement one another. By combining our efforts to build a Performing Arts Program for Youth, we create a unique opportunity for kids to both perform and to watch live performance created for young audiences. An emphasis is placed on playful, positive collaboration, listening and supporting, creating in the moment, and telling stories that are meaningful both to the performer and to the listener.
Also, it’s crazy fun.
