Kids Comedy Camp this Summer!

Hey – We think your kid is pretty funny, too!

TNM Theater, New Orleans’ only full-time Comedy Conservatory and Performance Venue is now enrolling pre-teens and teens for our Summer 2019 Comedy Camp held August 5th -9th.

Over the course of the week Comedy Campers will learn:

  • Comedy Theory Basics
  • Improv and Acting Exercises
  • How to Develop, Write and Perform Comedic Material
  • The Power of Ensemble Work (Creative Collaboration, Listening Skills, Respecting New Ideas and Effective Communication)
  • A Multitude of Show Production Skills from Costume to Tech Design

Camp will culminate Friday evening with a comedy show written, performed, and co-directed by the campers on TNM’s theater stage.

We empower each group of campers to hone and strengthen their particular areas of creative interest, not everyone has to be in the spotlight! Our experienced Conservatory staff is happy to tackle any questions you may have about Comedy Camp being a good fit for your kid, email or call us directly (512-788-2669) for more information.
