The Second City Training Center opens more Teen/Youth Summer Camps and Adult Summer Immersions for National and International students this year than ever before.
Chicago is the world capital of Improvisation and Sketch Comedy and The Second City is in the heart of it. For over fifty years The Second City has created a wealth of comedic material from a legendary group of performers and this summer is opening it's doors to more students from around the world than ever before.
With alum's like Stephen Colbert, Amy Sedaris, Chris Farley and Steve Carrell, The Second City Training Center attracts an ever-increasing student body looking to learn the art of comedy. Normal 8-week programming does not lend itself easily to the hungry student living beyond the city and suburban boundaries, however. So, each summer, Chicago's Training Center offers a variety of week-long adult immersions and 2-week teen camps in the performance arts for students at any level of experience and zip code. From entrepreneurs looking to ignite a little creativity using improv techniques to professional ‘on-tour’ actors searching to deepen their resume with an advanced immersion, The Second City builds it’s summer classes to satisfy each ambitious student.
