Teen Improv Troupe

The teen improv troupe aka “The Teenyboppers” has been bringing laughter to the community since Spring 2019.

Improv is a fun, fast-paced art form that requires the actor to think outside of the box. It demands focus, a willingness to listen and engage, and tells a story without the safety net of a script.

Troupe members explore and develop their improv, storytelling, acting, and teamwork skills in a safe, supportive environment. They work on acting exercises, short-form improv games, as well as long-form improv activities.

Our Education & Community Engagement Department introduced the Teen Improv Troupe as a way to create additional performance opportunities for teens. The long-term goal is for this group to be ambassadors of the theatre and bring laughter to the community.
