In this series of classes, students ages 13–16 will study the oft-forgotten art of making things up. With an eye towards producing a cohesive performance group, the class will use games, exercises, and a whole lot of general silliness to build a foundation of important improv skills. Topics will include narrative structure, status play, audience interaction, gibberish, mime, and more!
Where: CCCT, 951 Pomona Ave, El Cerrito, CA 94530
About Our Instructors
Austin Zumbro started as a camper at Live at CCCT Summer Drama Camp when he was 12 years old. Six years later, he started at Stanford University, where he studied creative writing and improvised theater. Four years later, he graduated with a degree in neuroscience. Since then, he has largely spent his time writing creatively, improvising performances, and looking for an opportunity to utilize his impractical neuroscience degree.
Myriah Nottage first got involved with CCCT as an A-camper. She then began working as a stage manager for CCCT’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and a few others. Finally, at 16, she became a counselor for Drama Camp! Five years later, Myriah is attending UC Davis for Human Development and is looking forward to directing her first session of Drama Camp this summer.
