CHILDREN’S ‘Lil Crazies’ Workshops:

The OC Crazies not only offers comedy programs to adults, it also provides training to youngsters and teens. We offer both workshops in a 7-week series, and also one-week bootcamps and one-day workshops throughout the year. Children must audition for the classes or have been a prior Crazies student in the past.

Our current offerings:

“Lil Crazies” All Improv Tween Workshop: Saturdays. 

This seven-week series is held every Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon. This workshop focuses on learning and implementing the basic tenets of improv comedy through drills, games, exercises and scenes.  We accept tweens and teens from ages 8 -13.  We will add a teen class–children from 14 to 18 years old in 2022. Classes are limited to 6-8 students.

While our children’s classes currently focus on improvisational comedy, we will soon be adding a stand-up comedy class.

What we teach in our improv workshops:

  • Fundamentals of Improv Comedy (rules and tools)
  • “Space work” techniques
  • Stage movement
  • How to’s of creating, building and developing original characters
  • Skills and techniques that lessen inhibitions, build confidence, nurture creativity
  • How to interact with a team player mindset

The OC Crazies also offer other youth workshops. Our teen group schedule will be posted later in 2021 which will be underway in 2022.  We also offer a summer bootcamp for both age groups as well. Check our schedule for dates and times in 2022

We teach children a variety of skills that are fun, creative and confidence-building. Just like our other Crazies classes, we will offer showcase graduation performances at the conclusion of our individual workshops.
