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.
