Too often, teens are told to be quiet and listen– but here at Sea Tea Improv, we want to hear their wildest and most creative ideas! Sea Tea Improv’s teen improv classes are all about harnessing the wit and wisdom of students ages 13 – 17 and turning it into intelligent, cool comedy. Whether your teen wants to pursue a career in comedy, get more confident, round out theatrical training, or fend off bullies with a great comeback, Sea Tea Improv is here to help.
Prerequisites: None! (ages 17 and under only)
Chicago Teen Comedy Fest
The Teen Performance Class has two components: first, we’ll spend eight weeks honing our improv skills, getting to know each other, and forming a great team. Then, for the second year in a row, we’ll fly out to America’s comedy mecca: Chicago! Last year’s team saw two professional improv shows– one at Second City and one at the Improv Olympic– and participated in a whole day of improv, sketch comedy, and stand-up comedy workshops. Each of our wonderful teens that went to Chicago had a life-changing exposure to different styles of comedy.
This years festival is on April 18th, 2015.The cost of this year’s class & trip is $599. This price includes the eight-week class, travel and lodging to Chicago, and entertainment in Chicago. We recognize that this class is expensive and have tried to keep the costs as low as possible, but we know it will be difficult for some families to afford this trip. Sea Tea Improv is highly committed to sending all interested teens on the trip, so we are happy to discuss payment plans or help structure fundraising efforts with the students. Please do not hesitate to contact us if your teen is interested in the class but a deposit of this magnitude is out of reach at this time. We will help your family find a way.
