Teens will learn the in’s and out’s of sketch comedy live AND video production! They will write and rehearse for their very own fully-produced show and shoot a professionally-filmed video sketch set to premiere at their showcase.

Building on our Kids Camp, Teens will have a more hands-on experience in producing their show! They will meet with Head Writer John B. Babcock for writing sessions à la “writing room” to create original sketches, solo pieces, runners, and/or blackout sketches for their show. Acting Coach Tom von Dohlen will guide the teens in blocking and rehearsing sketches, pre-production for their film, stage management, and much more. In this camp, teens are working alongside their coach to put on their best show possible!

This two-week intensive includes:
Sketch Writing
Acting Technique for Theatre and Film
Comedic Timing
Solo Sketch Pieces
Improv
Pre-Production for Film
Stage Management
This camp will culminate in a fully-produced LIVE sketch comedy show and the premiere of their professionally-produced SKETCH VIDEO!
