We are super excited to announce that we have another comedy summer camp for kids this year! We are hosting kids in our fun and engaging summer program in our home at The BIG Theater! This year, camp will be Monday, July 22nd - Friday, July 26th.
In a fun day camp, kids learn the basics of comedy in the performing arts. This helps chldren learn soft skills while also creating solid scene work and fun characters. As students they'll gain self-confidence while exploring their own creativity and experiencing how group trust and teamwork make for amazing and hilarious theater.
For kids, we're focusing on helping them learn about:
When it come to teaching kids, we know they don't need lessons to be completely serious all of the time. So we've created a summer programs to help children communicate through leadership, public speaking & storytelling.
It's important for kids to learn to work together. So we're helping them with team building. Improv tools help kids learn to comfortably be spontaneous and shift as they get new information.
Not only does this ways of doing things cause a change in children's behavior, it helps them learn to work in new ways. What produces results is this new way of thinking.
Our teachers learned from the best in the business and comedy worlds including regular training from New York City's Upright Citizen's Brigade (UCB), Magnet Theater, and Chicago's Second City.

For many years we’ve relied on media and strangers visiting school assemblies to teach us valuable lessons.
You probably think I’m talking about hiring BIG to visit your school. You might even expect me to plug that we’re a rostered artist with Young Audiences of Maryland. And yes you're right, we total will do a true and actual educational program that visits your school and does an actual assembly. Sure, you could totally hire us!
However!! That’s not what this post is about. This time we're presenting a comedy show in response to all of the adults who taught us valuable lessons as kids. Producer Alexa Sciuto tells us about the show After School Special and the performers of improv team Ready, Set, NO in the below interview transcript.
