SUMMER CAMP IN AUSTIN

Esther’s Follies School of Comedy offers special summer camp sessions to teach kids and teens the art of tomfoolery. These week-long intensives are taught by the talented cast of Esther’s Follies. Students practice the fundamentals of improv, sketch comedy, and stand-up, and the week culminates with a performance in the iconic Esther’s Follies Theater for family and friends.
Students will learn several classic improv games, as well as how to create a narrative scene by working together and with an audience.
Students will perform comedy scenes while learning the basic skills of the stage, from blocking and slapstick comedy to character creation.
Students will learn fundamentals including comedic storytelling, pop culture satire, impressions, one-liners, and how to handle those pesky hecklers.
