General Summer Camp Information:

Location: ColdTowne Theater, at 4803 Airport Blvd.

Staff:  Our teachers and counselors are all trained, active performers in the Austin Improv Community. We are lucky to have an extremely experienced and enthusiastic staff who share a dedication to comedy, youth and teaching.

Half Day Option: 9 am to noon. Our Half Day Camp is high energy and structured to engage students in the creative process, while allowing time to explore and play within the experience. Each week features a unique theme. $185.00

Full Day Option: 9 am to 4 pm. In addition to performance inspired by the weekly theme, our Full Day Camp includes an opportunity to collaborate with other campers and staff on a second performance project defined by student interest and theater resources. Past projects have included an original musical about crickets, a RuPaul’s Drag Race inspired Variety Show and a stand up showcase. It’s ok to add full day later – just let us know and we can make it happen. $295.00
