Summer Camps

All of our camps for Summer 2019 have wrapped! Check back next year for future offerings.

For the last 10 years, Go Comedy! Improv Theater has been offering summer improv camps for kids of all ages. Each camp is a week long and focuses on improv basics and performance games with an emphasis on listening, teamwork, and support. Whether your child is interested in the arts, a class clown, or just looking to share a laugh with new friends, this camp is for them! At camp’s end, the kids perform a show for family and friends. All camps take place at Go Comedy Improv Theater, in Ferndale, with experienced Go U instructors.

INSTRUCTORS:

Anna Imesch is a theater kid 100%. After starting musicals at age 14, then being introduced to improv in 2010 is when the obsession began. After graduating the Go U program in 2012, she commuted to Chicago and completed Second City’s conservatory program in 2015. She loves goats more than any human should and can reenact 86% of the musical Annie. She is so grateful to be a part of the Go Comedy Resident Cast and a teacher at Go. Catch her onstage at All-Star Showdowns, Pandamonia and playing with her troupes!

 

Annie Phillips began improvising in 2002 at The Second City Detroit. She trained there for two years before taking a hiatus for life (like college and children). She never forgot the joy she experienced doing improv, and finally returned in 2016.  She graduated from Go U: The Improv Academy, and was cast in Pointless Brewery & Theatre’s Shadow League, This Is A Quiz.  Annie teaches introductory improv classes at Pointless School of Improv, and has over ten years of experience teaching middle school and high school English. She can’t say enough about how important the improv community is to her, and she’s excited to share her passion with others!
