Since 2002, Improv 4 Kids has delighted over 4000 K-12 and family audiences with its unique brand of interactive musical comedy – Imagine Whose Line is It Anyway on Nickelodeon with a touch of New York – style theater. The result is a hilarious musical comedy revue created on the spot based on your child’s participation and suggestions. No two shows are the same as the cast uses your ideas to perform original scenes and songs. Many children – and a few adult volunteers – help influence the comedy directly while on stage.
In addition to its weekly public performances, Improv 4 Kids (and Improv
4 Teens) hosts field trips to the Times Square theatre and tour schools nationwide, using comedy to teach valuable life skills (creativity, community and leadership). Improv shows and workshop are perfect with cultural arts, language arts, character building and other areas of education.
“Our programs teach public speaking and critical thinking” says co-founder, Walt Frasier. “And ‘Comedy’ gets students’ attentions because it is ‘fun’ and ‘cool’. Student do not even realize they are learning. As a result, they develop self-confidence, learn quickly and use these skills to thrive in all their classes.”
In addition to producing hundreds of Improv shows and workshops every year for K-12 schools, Mr. Frasier is formerly the Director of Instruction for the Comedy Hall of Fame and works with the New Jersey Association for Gifted Children. Together with his team of teachers, they offer weekly classes at the Broadway Comedy Club and through school and community programs throughout the Tristate area.
