AP Comedy is the youth education branch of renowned comedy theater and training center The New Movement. TNM operates out of two locations - Austin and New Orleans - and through our in-school programming, out-of-school classes, mobile workshops, and summer camps, we seek to bring excellent improv arts education to as many young people as possible.
As our teen improv training program has grown, we're proud to announce that AP Comedy will now also include teaching kids the basics of sketch comedy and the basics of how to put together their very own sketch shows!
Our Fall 2015 AP Comedy Classes will take place every Saturday from 10am-12pm for 8 weeks (starting Sept. 26) @ TNM Austin (616 Lavaca St.)

WHAT TO EXPECT WITH OUR PROGRAM
In addition to having fun and trying new things, at the end of their 8-week classes, 10-12 young performers will form a team capable of pulling off a full improv or sketch show for family and friends at their recital, which will take place in front of a packed house on the mainstage at TNM!

GIVE TO A CAMPER
In order to make our programming accessible to students of all income levels, we offer AP Comedy scholarships.
In the future, we hope these scholarships will be created in part with grant funding, but at our current stage, our scholarships are funded entirely out-of-pocket from the theater and by the generous donations of our supporters who think kids and comedy make a good combo.The cost of a full scholarship is $200, but you can donate anything you'd like. We're attempting to raise enough to offer six full scholarships, but we're happy with whatever you can afford to give.
Wanna help? Cool. Use the Eventbrite form above to throw some bucks in the hat. Let’s team up on this and make these kids feel like rock stars!
