Then send them over to BAFT's Improv/Sketch Comedy Camp for Teens at BPP's Ted Jones Playhouse where they’ll learn to perfect their comedic acting, joke writing, and improv abilities! Not only will they learn how to script and improvise an entire original comedy show, they will pick up confidence, collaboration, and communication skills through our improvisation and community-building curriculum.
