Focus on Musical Theater productions or showcases Broadway style with concentrations in acting, voice, choreography and dance, sparking a young person's imagination, building their communication skills and instilling a sense of discipline, responsibility and dedication. Final performances are generally on the final Thursday or Friday!  Performances will be held on local stages at the camp facilities.  Unless otherwise noted:  Our Music Theatre Camps serve campers grades entering 3rd - 9th, with two-week full-day or half-day options for campers entering 1st - 3rd.  Accommodations will be made to segregate younger campers from older campers giving focused attention to age groups though they are combined in rehearsals, field trips and final showcases.

Glee Showcase Camp is all about Acting, Dance & Pop-Rock Vocal Technique. This two week camp will be the final piece of your triple threat summer at Improv Playhouse, unless of course you join another camp!  Receive a T-shirt and perform in a Final Show with pro-orchestrated trax, our unique customized script, incredible staff, and you're ready to go to that next audition...or just have fun!!

Improv and comedy summer fun!  Improv Camp creates a sense of play through the theatre games made famous by the TV show "Whose Line is it Anyway?" and the main stage improv theaters in Chicago.  Each camper will build spontaneity, poise, stage presence, outward focus and commitment to their comedy-performance team.  The final showcase will have you roaring!  Our Pro-Improv staff of counselors are great with kids and are performers in the Chicagoland Improv Community.

. Do you dream of becoming a model?  Did you know that it’s a fun career and a performing art?!  This is an exciting and glam “boot camp” that will leave you with a ton of knowledge on how to take the next big step.  Young ladies and men will be taught everything they need to know about the competitive fashion, print modeling and pageant industry in a week filled with runway technique, role playing, a healthy self concept, visits from pros and a final fashion showcase. What fun!  Each day will focus on new activities that build upon each other!

 

   

OUR MISSION

Improv Playhouse Performing Arts Camps (ACA accredited) involve your child in fun filled, local summer programming with stellar professional staff at prices for families looking for flexible choices and discriminating budgets.  Each camp session will offer unique training and each camper will have the opportunity to explore and focus upon new paths of creativity in the Performing Arts. Improv Playhouse emphasizes an environment that nurtures every child as an individual artist, challenges aspiring actors and inspires theater beginners. All levels are encouraged to enroll. Programming will not be duplicated from mornings to afternoons where applicable.

- We work to provide a non-competitive, nurturing and  fun environment for our campers.
- All roles in the workshops are assigned to the children by our staff. Campers are not  required to do cold readings or prepare memorized audition pieces.
- We reserve the right to determine casting at our discretion.
- Any special clothing, costumes or dress is provided by the parents.  Our camp shows are only $5 (to cover special rental of the stages) and open only to the friends and family members of our campers.

 

Fun Times! Great Friends! And More!
