Class Description

Audition for a chance to be on the Improv Team! Only 4–6 students will be accepted onto the team. Each auditioning student will be sent an email asking for their second choice for classes. This needs to be completed before the audition date: August 15th at The Cardinal Church. Check in will be at 6pm. Auditions will run from 6:30-8pm.

Create drama, humor and stories on the spot. This class will give you the basic principles of improvisation and give you the confidence to embrace everything that is thrown at you when you don't have a script in your hands. Learn team-building skills that will strengthen your ability to play with your partners on stage. In this class that solely focuses on short-form improv, you will learn how to live “in the moment" and confidently say Yes! to anything.

Each CYT Chicago Chapter will bring a team of Improvisers to our Regional Competition, Improvapalooza in January. Teams will go head to head in a battle of wits for a chance to represent CYT Chicago at the national competition, Improvathon held in June in San Diego! Previous improv experience or class is recommended. Some out of class participation may be required. Contact your Class Coordinator for information on audition day and time. 


Meg Ramsland

I started CYT at the age of 5 in the very first class that NW Cook County offered. From there, I performed in 22 musicals and was a member of six improv teams with CYT before graduating. I since have been the coach of three improv teams and most recently I coached NW Cook all the way to the national competition in San Diego! I love how theater can be used to tell stories, make connections, and explore creativity in a safe space. When not at CYT, I work as a children's assistant librarian, bake scones, and watch Netflix with my dog, Pippin. My favorite word is quintessential.
