Improvised comedy for 8-12 year olds, courtesy of Nottingham’s only improvised comedy performance team.  Little Imps gives 8-12 year olds the opportunity to learn improvised comedy and drama skills in a safe and supportive environment.

Our fully CRB checked teachers run a weekly drop-in workshop session every Saturday morning, from 9.30am to 11.30am at the Rushcliffe Leisure Centre.

Read more about the first month of Little Imps here.

What can your child expect to learn?  Well, improvised comedy helps kids learn many skills including:

  • Listening, focusing and paying attention
  • Public speaking and stage performance
  • Developing imaginative situations and characters
  • Confidence and social interaction
  • Quick thinking and creativity

We’ve been teaching improv to adults for years and, after increasing demand from parents, are delighted to have launched the same weekly workshops for kids. These are drop-in workshops and so your child is welcome to come every week or simply whenever they are available.   All we need is your signed consent to start with.  And, you’re welcome to stay if you wish, although our CRB approved staff will be delighted to entertain your kids for you.

We also plan to start 6-week courses for kids looking to improve their comedy and drama skills – more information to follow.

Who are we? We are MissImp, Nottingham’s only performance improvisation group.  We’ve been playing to packed crowds since 2008 and have received our training from the best improvisers in the UK, Europe and the USA.

(For reference, some of the other content on the MissImp website is a tad child-unfriendly.  Just so you don’t let them hear naughty words by accident…)
