Croton Academy of Comedic Arts

 

Grades 4 – 12
Croton Academy of Comedic Arts (caca) is a performance based program which focuses on comedic and improvisational acting skills. caca fosters communication, public speaking, self-awareness creativity, confidence, and social interaction. Teens and children in grades 4-12 meet and interact in a fun and supportive environment to further develop their creative skills. Our students develop and create improvisational comedy routines, perform scripted comedic sketches and stand up comedy.

 

C.A.C.A. classes feature:

  • Warm up, cool down & focusing exercises
  • Improv Skills/Performance Improvs
    • Building character
    • Creating environments
    • Establishing relationships
    • Conflict/resolution
    • Physical comedy
  • Writing workshops
  • Scripted scenes
  • Standup comedy
  • Introduction to Public Speaking

 

Each CACA session culminates with a performance for family and friends. For instance: We will take one suggestion and use that as inspiration for improvised scenes. From that tiny suggestion grows an improvisational tornado of extraordinary characters, extraordinary situations, and usually at least one impersonation of a live animal.

 

Doesn't that sound funny? Well, it will be. Come have a fun night with caca!
