A former high school improviser (and inarguably successful adult) sent this post to Trish today, with the note: "I feel like you'd appreciate this." Everyone involved with Operation: Show! knows from experience that improv is a great way for kids to learn to work with other people and navigate in a world where collaboration really matters. But Stephanie McCullough Vlcek, Psy.D., faculty member at The Second City Training Center, and Head Music Director of ComedySportz Chicago, says it better than most.
If you're worried about your child spending gorgeous Sunday afternoons in a dark theater with a bunch of goofballs, we hope you'll find this article reassuring.
