  • The Revival Improv Comedy Theater
    The Revival Improv Summer Camp may be in its first year, but its roots run all the way back to the 1950s. That's when improvisation, the comedic art form that creates off-the-cuff scenes from audience suggestions, made its debut in The Revival's Hyde Park neighborhood. First a one-off third act by the theatrical group The Compass Players, improv quickly grew into its own entity, jump-starting the careers of Elaine May and Mike Nichols and inspiring the founding of The Second City. The Revival brings improv back to its beginnings by instilling its principles of spontaneity and teamwork in youngsters. And, yes, there will be yes, and-ing. Each week, Chicago-improv-trained instructors lead campers through team exercises, games, and scenes that build self-confidence and encourage self-expression. At the end of each camp week, students show off their new skills in a performance for their family and friends.
