Conservatory Program

Back to All Auditions
  • Chicago Training Center

Study improv as an acting technique and its use in the development of a Second City-style revue in this advanced program, the cornerstone of The Second City Training Center. Students build upon the fundamentals of improvisation, advance their scenic and character skills, explore forms and styles and learn how to use improv to create material for a satiric comedy revue.

The Conservatory is a six-level program. An audition is required for admission into the program. All students must have completed at least one full year of a progressive improvisation training program and at least one acting class at the post-high school level.

Audition sign-up will be available online or by calling the Training Center. Visit the Conservatory page for more information.
