Students appreciate literature as it comes to life
Improv Playhouse has established its Community Outreach & Education mission with the goal of specifically expanding its Creative Education programming in public and private schools, increasing diversity outreach in Lake County and the metro Chicago area, and providing scholarships to students who exhibit financial need and exemplary skills in the performing arts.
Relate character, setting, plot to real-life situations
Our staff emphasize the importance of personal integrity in the application of communications skills in real life situations, thereby integrating creative expression with the best of an individual's values and strongest character attributes. We view our role as professional consultants as well as producers, educators and actors who hold advanced degrees in the creative arts with over forty years experience in the field.
Students make connections to their own experiences
We become the external resource for many organizations, creating problem-solving solutions in educationally-focused training and team-building environments. Theater has long been a conduit for both education and entertainment. Its popularity can be attributed to many things inclusive of its celebration of life and introspection, as well as the expression of the human spirit. It is our hope that our partnerships would become a laboratory that continually investigate and reflect on the possibilities that can exist between our combined resources and those organizations seeking our creative and artistic services.
