Improv Educational Programming + Stand- Up Comedy Training and Mentoring. »
We needed an assembly that would fit...as well as be entertaining. Arts Horizons suggested an Improvisational assembly that would engage the students and be fun at the same time. The students absolutely loved (The Improv School), they laughed from beginning to end. It was a pleasure to deal with (them) and the very talented young actors. --- Patrice Carrieri, President Pearl River Middle School P.T.A.
The Election Show
How do we elect our President? This show illustrates the election process from candidates' declarations to the inauguration and everything in-between. Students will get to act as the electorate and memebers of the Electoral College.
The Improv School’s Character Education Programming
The Bullying Stops Here!
Peer Pressure: You’re In Charge Of You!
Part show, part workshop, The Improv School brings character education to your school with assembly programs on Bullying and Peer Pressure. Students watch and learn from the scripted elements of each show and then participate in conflict resolution improv scenes to foster a greater understanding on what to do if they find themselves in these situations.
The 5W's of Story
Through this exciting and interactive improv comedy show, The Improv School teaches “The 5 W’s of Story” and how to utilize them to understand the stories they encounter each and every day. Students are called upon to help build each improv scene with their own 5 W’s ideas and are even invited to improvise with the cast on stage!
