January

Since 2002 EIGHT IS NEVER ENOUGH has presented over 6000 shows for K-12 and family audiences in Times Square and touring schools, camps, community centers and private events. Hilarious interactive musical comedy is improvised based on audience suggestions and participation. No two shows are ever the same. Every 5 minute the MC interacts directly with the students to get suggestions for the next scene or song (called games in Improv). 3-4 games require students on stage directly steering the comedy. Improv

Workshops dramatically increase the educational value of the program. Students play a series of games under the direction of our teaching artist. While teaching Improv and Performance, students learn creative writing, critical thinking, public speaking, self confidence, listening, focus, respect/team communications and more.

Learning how to Improv is one part acting, one part creative writing. In addition to creating fun character we spontaneously write a story as a team. Listening and Responding – always saying / thinking “YES! And…” – we start our stories,  establishing characters and setting. This process requires trusting and respecting our scene partners.

The workshop is so much fun students do not even realize the educational components. But you will as they start to participate in their every day studies, engaging in discussions, reading in class and listening better to lectures.

“A production you and your children don’t want to miss” ABC NEWS

Every show by Improv 4 Kids / Improv 4 Teens includes 2-4 songs, 2-4 interactive games with audience participation on stage and additional scene games. Every 3-5 minutes the MC is interacting with the audience to get ideas for scenes and songs. No two shows are every the same. We can also steer the stories and songs toward a theme that fits your school’s agenda for the year. In past we have worked well with PARP and other pro reading programs, Anti-Bully, SEL, Story telling / Language Arts, Cultural Arts Music and Theater, and more. But our greatest value is providing laughter, which reduces stretch and makes school a fun place. Laughter in the classroom increases test scores and mental/physical health of students and staff.

Our workshops further the educational value, getting students up on their feet to play a series of games that teach creativity (writing and critical thinking), community (team, respect, listening, eye contact) and leadership (self confidence and public speaking). Improv is the most fun way to develop a student body confident to participate in class, which leads to better learning and testing.

After School or In School Residencies

look similar to our public programs. Our teachers work with a smaller group of students working towards a performance showcase. Compared to a typical theater program, EVERY student is a star and gets equal stage time to develop these valuable life skills. Most plays and musicals benefit a small group, depending on a larger group to play ensemble or work tech. Improv utilizes every student. Every member of the team is valued and gets a chance to shine.

We also have residency programs that will send a teaching artist to EVERY class in the school to introduce concepts of YES And, listening, public speaking and more to every student. We often pair this with professional development.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT for TEACHERS

by Improv Theater LLC is both Corporate style Team Building and offers valuable techniques  for the class room. We find many teachers lack the self confidence to lead a class. Every team is only as strong as its weakest link.  Improv can be used to role play historical and literary characters. We show teachers how to use games in the classroom to get students focused and break the tension before a big math or science test. And Improv gets the staff laughing together, breaking down walls or resentments and insecurity and building strong bonds. In addition to many K-12 schools, we have worked with teams from 100s of corporations including Twitter, JP Morgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, Louis Vuitton, Coach, BDO, Home Depot and even US Medicare Accountants.
