More About iP:

Improv Playhouse is a professional theatre and entertainment organization the scope of which includes a full-service acting school specializing in comprehensive improv - comedy and acting classes for adults and youth.  Divisions of Improv Playhouse include Corporate Team Building, Business and Private Entertainment, Talent Management, Performing Arts Camps and Community Outreach and Education (IP-COE / nfp).

Many adherents to our training philosophy evolve into professional performers on stage in the improvisation, television and film industries. The Adult and Youth improvisation program is all-inclusive and thorough in methodology, formation and curricula catapulting its students to the highest levels of development.  Adult improv shows and dozens of youth productions are performed throughout the year immersing actors in opportunities which include focused dramatic training and musical theatre.  Each adult or young actor, if desired, is given personal attention from their first acting class, warm up, through the audition process and final performances. One facet of Improv Playhouse’s core philosophy is to educate and entertain audiences and students of all ages, demographics and locations; as well as to bring instruction and guidance to emerging improvisational artists and ensembles; by focusing on and about modern improvisational theatre, a Chicago-born and bred art form.
