Summer Intensive – Main Page

Our 2nd annual Impro Theatre Summer Intensive, Making a Play: Magic and Melodrama, will be a week-long summer intensive that teaches and demonstrates our unique approach to improvising plays and musicals, with an emphasis in Soap Opera and Fairytales. This is your chance to study with Impro's Main Company members in specialized classes taught at the Impro Theatre School in Los Angeles, California. Using techniques that encourage artful storytelling, the Impro Theatre Summer Intensive fosters creativity and risk taking in a small classroom setting. We will also be shuffling up the students and teachers so that you can collaborate with everyone in the intensive.

"Impro has been a huge hit with our audiences for four summers and counting, and we are determined to have them back at OSF for a longer residency."
– Bill Rauch, Artistic Director, Oregon Shakespeare Festival

 
"Impro delivers smart, literate comedy that we can recommend to our audience with confidence.  It is my pleasure to continue to offer a home at The Playhouse to Impro Theatre, based on my admiration for their work, their collaborative spirit, and the theatrical diversity that they bring to our building."
– Sheldon Epps, Artistic Director, Pasadena Playhouse

 
"Studying improvisation provides a metaphor in which you can learn how to be more human and stretch the limits of the self. Impro Theatre provides the highest quality training I know to experience this life affirming work. I highly recommend this intensive."
– Patricia Ryan Madson, Stanford Emerita,
Author of Improv Wisdom

 
"These guys are really wonderful! They work without a net every night. They’re very brave and very good."
– Garry Marshall, comedy legend

"The future of the art of improvisation is being developed and practiced at Impro. Attend this intensive to change the way your approach as a performer. You will learn how to deepen narrative and relationship, practice detailed space work, and understand that where your head is at matters. Experienced, passionate teachers lead the way. "
- Previous Summer Intensive Student
 
“The Impro Theatre School is one of the most invigorating and inspiring training grounds for acting that I know.”
- Daniel Blinkoff, MFA, Yale School of Drama

 
"I don't think I have ever experienced improv like this before. I am on an improv tour in the US and this was by far the best intensive I've ever had. The instructors were very generous and gave attention to every student. This is a no miss for any improviser out there in the world who would like to step up their improv journey. The musical improv sessions were wonderful too! I would totally sign up for this again and again"
- Naser Al Sughaiyer improviser
