Unexpected Productions Improv School
The Largest Improv School in the Northwest!
What's New?


Hey teens, spend a week working with Seattle's premiere improv company. Our professionally-trained instructors represent some of Seattle's best and most experienced improv teachers and performers. We tech improv in a fun and supportive environment within which you will explore, develop, and succeed (and have a blast). Starting July 31st at 9:00 AM

Over the course of 5 days, improvisers ages 12 and up explore the unique process of improvisation. Each day, students dive into an exciting array of expertly crafted theater games, improvisational exercises, ensemble-building activities and performance opportunities.

One Week of FUN!
Our industry-leading artists  guide students as they build the performance skills necessary to deliver an impressive and hilarious end-of-session show for friends and family. 

Students learn and play many of the same performance pieces you've seen our professionals present at Theatresports, every Friday and Saturday night.

Our teachers mentor students as they discover the many benefits of improv: off-stage-new friendships, listening skills, stronger communication skills, confidence,  imagination, applied creativity, collaboration, and openness to new ideas.
