Improv Playhouse Audition Showcase Camp

is all about Acting, Dance & Pop-Rock Vocal Technique. This one week camp is the first Ensemble Showcase Option of your triple threat summer at Improv Playhouse.  Receive a T-shirt and perform in a Final Show with pro-orchestrated trax, our unique customized script, incredible staff, and you're ready to go to that next audition...or just have fun!!

The rest of your IP-Summer includes a diverse selection of 2-Week Musical Theater Camps.  All will showcase Broadway style with concentrations in acting, voice, choreography and dance, sparking a young person's imagination, building their communication skills and instilling a sense of discipline, responsibility and dedication. Final performances are generally on the final Thursday and Fridays!  Performances will be held on our local stages at the camp facilities.  Unless otherwise noted:  Our FULL DAY Music Theatre Camps serve campers grades entering 4th - 9th, with HALF-DAY options for campers entering 1st - 3rd.  Accommodations are made to segregate younger campers from older campers giving focused attention to age groups though they might be combined in some rehearsals, field trips and final showcases.  Some exceptions to your camper's schedule may be approved.

Do you dream of becoming a model?  Did you know that it’s a fun career and a performing art?!  This is an exciting and glam “boot camp” that will leave you with a ton of knowledge on how to take the next big step or just have fun with your new and old friends!.  Young ladies and men will be taught everything they need to know about the competitive fashion, print modeling and pageant industry in a week filled with runway technique, role playing, a healthy self concept, visits from pros and a final fashion showcase. We'll collaborate with Amazing Cosmetics and other great retail places around Libertyville.  What fun!  Each day will focus on new activities that build upon each other!

Our camp staff team consists of dedicated theater and entertainment business practitioners who have worked as nurturing leaders in education, camping and their respective fields.  Staff members include interns and counselors age 18+, and Camp Directors who oversee each camp location. Our counselors have trained experience in dance/choreo, voice, drama, film, modeling and performance instruction.   They enjoy working with children to help them gain confidence, grow as performers, build their interdependent communities and most importantly have FUN!

   

OUR MISSION

Improv Playhouse Performing Arts Camps (ACA accredited) involve your child in fun filled, local summer programming with stellar professional staff at prices for families looking for flexible choices and discriminating budgets.  Each camp session will offer unique training and each camper will have the opportunity to explore and focus upon new paths of creativity in the Performing Arts. Improv Playhouse emphasizes an environment that nurtures every child as an individual artist, challenges aspiring actors and inspires theater beginners. All levels are encouraged to enroll. Programming will not be duplicated from mornings to afternoons where applicable.

- We work to provide a non-competitive, nurturing and  fun environment for our campers.
- All roles in the workshops are assigned to the children by our staff. Campers are not  required to do cold readings or prepare memorized audition pieces.
- We reserve the right to determine casting at our discretion.
- Any special clothing, costumes or dress is provided by the parents.  Our camp shows are only $5 (to cover special rental of the stages) and open only to the friends and family members of our campers.

-Full and half camp hours include breaks for snacks and lunch time.

Fun Times! Great Friends! And More!
