Improvised comedy for 13-17 year olds, courtesy of Nottingham’s only improvised comedy performance team. Teen Imps gives young people the opportunity to learn improvised comedy and drama skills in a safe and supportive environment.
Information for participants
What is improv? It’s short for improvisation, making it up as you go along. We do comedy improvisation. It’s the art of being funny with others. If you’re interested in stand up comedy, sketches, theatre or any performance arts you’ll probably find improv useful, and a lot of fun. Come to the weekly workshops and learn how to find comedy in everything. Every week we’ll play games, do exercises and learn how to create comedy scenes and sketches out of nowhere.
Information for parents
Our fully CRB checked teachers will be running weekly drop-in workshop sessions after school starting in January 2013.
What can your child expect to learn? Well, improvised comedy helps people learn many skills including:
- Confidence, self-esteem and social interaction
- Quick thinking and creativity
- Listening, focusing and paying attention
- Public speaking and stage performance
- Developing imaginative situations and characters
We’ve been teaching improv to adults for years and, after increasing demand from parents and teenagers, are delighted to be introducing the same weekly workshops for age-appropriate groups. 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.
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…)
