ComedyVacation for February 18-22, 2019!

$375/$500 w/Extra Care 

Over 5 laugh-packed days, artists ages 8-17 explore the world of comedy with the experts at ImprovBoston. We dive into the foundation of improvisation and the fundamentals of standup. We delve into daily electives like storytelling, sketch, clowning and comedy writing for social media. All our exploration is rooted in Support, Trust, Risk-Taking, Confidence and Fun (ImprovBoston’s 5 Pillars). With three sections (ages 8-10, 11-13 and 14-17), we tailor our week-long journey to the age, creative development and comedic sensibilities of each artist. The week builds to a celebratory showcase of improv and standup in our main theater with lighting, live music, and of course an audience filled with friends and family. 

No performance experience? No problem! We offer an exciting array of expertly crafted theater games, improvisational exercises, ensemble-building activities, formats for personal creative expression and performance opportunities that support our artists who are new to the stage. Our staff creates a welcoming, inclusive and confidence-boosting experience. As a nonprofit arts organization with over 35 years of supporting the community through laughter, we believe in the power of comedy to change lives. 

Tons of performance experience? Bring it! ImprovBoston’s staff are comedy industry professionals. We are focused on helping our returning and veteran comedians step out of their comfort zones and step into a world of challenging new techniques. In addition to collaborating with our entire team of ComedyClinic instructors on improvisation and standup, each young artist picks an elective from our ever-changing daily offerings. The freedom of choice allows even our most experienced returning performers to follow what inspires them most, learn new skills and hone their comedic voice.

Join us for a week of laughing and learning, for new friendships, inspiration and over-the-top fun at New England’s most established comedy theater.
