Operation: Show is a weekly improv comedy “competition” (we don’t even keep track of winners and losers) between different schools, every fall and spring at ComedyCity. It’s produced by Seriously Playful, an all-volunteer, non-profit organization created to teach improvisation to Kansas City Metro area high school students.
It’s also the easiest program your school will ever participate in. Why?
We do all the work.
We donate money to your program at the end.
It’s completely free for students and schools.
You can get all the details in our FAQ, but here are the basics:
You sign your school up using the form above to create a team, and your students sign up to join.
We assign your team a coach from a local, professional improv troupe.
Your students attend an orientation at ComedyCity to learn improv skills and games.
We schedule your team for about three matches each season (Fall and Spring). They’ll show up at 1pm for a rehearsal session with their coach, and put on a show with three other teams at 3pm.
Students are responsible for spreading the word to friends, family and fans. Tickets are cheap—just $5.
At the end of the season, you’re all invited to an awards show, all-play and pizza party.
And at the end of the year, we send you a check for 20% of your team’s ticket sales.
You can be as involved—or not—as you want to. We know how hard you work, so we want to make this as easy as possible.
