For over 8 years the Conservatory program has been providing top level ensemble based classes for improvisers in the city. The program has been a place for improvisers to meet weekly and perform monthly to hone skills and develop comedic chops.

Ensembles

Conservatory is different on purpose. The improviser’s brain is much like a muscle, and you can only build improvisational muscles by constantly working out. We believe working with a coach and 8-10 dedicated improvisers over a longer period is the best way to learn.

Sessions

Every session you’ll work with our faculty members on short form and long form improv projects. Each week will include a unit of skill building and then project rehearsal.

Shows

Our shows will take place in different size venues so that you get a wide range of performance experiences each session. You’ll also be able to join us for no additional charge at our Drop-In workshop and month House Party show.
