Event Description

Sundays Noon – 2:30pm

Welcome to the Sandbox!

Here at Arcade Comedy Theater, we take a sandbox approach to our youth comedy classes. You can come back time and time again and still learn something brand new. It's what we love about improv - the sand we use is always the same, but the creations are constantly changing!

We offer three sessions of classes for ages 9-13 all focusing on the fundamental improv skills of "Yes, And...," supporting and listening to your team, and having fun! Each session will focus on a specific aspect of the art of improv. While you do not have to take one to participate in another, we certainly encourage you to experience all three. Go with us on a journey as we learn How we work together (Ensemble), Where we can go (Environment), and Who we can become (Character)!

*If the class is full upon registration, we will put you on a wait list and try our best to get you in!

Perfect for everyone from the aspiring actor, to the class clown, to the thoughtful observer–Kids Comedy Classes are open to all personalities and experience levels! Improvisation isn’t just for future comedians. Kids will gain confidence in navigating challenges, public speaking, critical thinking, and working as a team, all while laughing and playing fun improv games (similar to those seen on TV’s Whose Line Is It Anyway?)

Pick Up/ Drop Off
All classes will take place at Arcade Comedy Theater at 943 Liberty Ave. An attendant at the main box office will be there to sign your teen in and out of each class. All students must be picked up by a parent or legal guardian. If your teen is going to be signed out by someone other than their parent/legal guardian (babysitters, nannies, carpools etc) please provide their full names and addresses in an email to the instructor. They will be asked to provide valid ID matching the information provided via email/handwritten note from the teen's parent/ legal guardian. In the case of high school-aged students, they may provide their own transportation, sign themselves in and out of class with permission given by parent/ legal guardian.

An Emergency Information Contact Form and other important safety information will be emailed to parents prior to the workshop.
