The Conservatory Program is designed to study the art of improvisation as it applies to the development of a Second City-style revue. It is first, a course in acting through improvisation and eventually, in the creation of scripted material developed through improvisation. There is no guarantee that acceptance into the program will lead to a position in one of our performing companies. If you are interested in auditioning, please read requirements below.
