Teen Conservatory

The Teen Conservatory Program is an exciting journey of study through the improvisational methods developed at The Second City over more than half a century. It is a 10-month program that explores improvisational performance and its use to create content. Teen Conservatory students move through three levels of study. They will learn to re-improvise and to write on their feet. Upon graduation, Conservatory students will have created an original Second City style revue with original sketches, songs and monologues.

Prerequisites: Audition required. Students must have 100 hours of improv study. To apply please submit a headshot, resume and 100-word essay explaining why you’d like to be part of The Second City Teen Conservatory to training.to@secondcity.com.

The application deadline for 2014-2015 is TBA. Auditions are on September 10, 2014.

Performances: All students of the Teen Conservatory Program are expected to perform in their class shows. Participation is considered a required part of a student's ensemble commitment to the Teen Conservatory Program. Conservatory students are also encouraged to attend the other student shows (Detention Halls and Teen Showcases). See the Training Centre Performances page for further details.
