Today was the first day of the Cow Tipping Comedy Improv Kids Camp, and it’s been a raging success from the get-go. With 11 kids here today (one is a half-day camp only) and two more joining us tomorrow, we’ve got a great group of really bright, creative kids that we are guiding into being able to play the improv games that we do at our regular shows.
Like I said, it’s been a great start, and the kids are having a lot of fun. The morning was spent doing the basics of trust and some quick-thinking games, and this afternoon we’ve divided the group into three smaller teams, which is giving the kids less downtime and more play-time refining those games into scenes for the show.
Oh, that reminds me, the kids are doing a show a on Friday at 6pm, and it will be at The Shop Helena. This space is kindly being donated by Matt Gorecki for the show, and will have enough space for parents and friends of the kids to see them, but it won’t be as overwhelming as a full stage would be.
There’s no charge for the show, but we are taking donations to put into a scholarship fund for kids for next summer’s camp. You know that will be awesome. Hopefully we’ll see you there.
And because I was left to my own devices, I called the kids’ show “We Need An Adult… …Beverage!”
You know you love it.
