Croton Academy of Comedic Arts (caca) is a performance-based program that focuses on comedic and improvisational acting skills. Comedy improv fosters communication, public speaking, creativity, confidence, and social interaction. Teens and children meet and interact in a fun and supportive environment to further develop their creative skills. 


C.A.C.A. classes feature:

  • Warm-up, cool down, & focusing exercises

  • Improv Skills/Performance Improvs​

  • Standup comedy (camp caca only)


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. Sounds like fun? Well, it is!

Our Acting Classes focus on theatre games and unique workshops designed to inspire imagination and creativity. Students gain self-esteem and independence while learning critical collaboration skills. Each session culminates in a presentation of scripted scenes or monologues or a full-length theatrical performance.  Enthusiasm, confidence, and individual creativity are celebrated while learning the foundations of acting; voice and speech, movement, and scene study technique.  For students already participating in school productions, our programs will enhance and polish their performing skills. For beginners, our classes can be major confidence-builders, as well as a fun, supportive introduction to the world of theater.


We also offer private coaching for Acting, Auditions, Scene study, and monologs by Jen Jiles. Private coaching or small group coaching is by appointment, please call us if interested.
