ATTENTION TEENS, TEACHERS, AND PARENTS!
Announcing the 2019/20 CSz MKE High School League season!
The High School League is back! For over 25 years CSz Milwaukee has had students from across the greater southeast Wisconsin area come and learn the basics of improvisational comedy and the unique ComedySportz format, which is known worldwide and is played professionally across over 30 cities in the United States and United Kingdom!
For the students, it’s a great place to meet new friends, learn a fun and engaging new skillset, and get them out of their shells and develop confidence in front of peers and an audience. They’ll learn improv and silly games that will make them comfortable being themselves in a safe, inclusive space. At CSz MKE, we believe that improv is for everyone. There is no acting, theater, or any other kind of experience needed to begin, and you can enter as a Freshmen, Sophomore, Junior, or Senior.
For the parents, it’s an excellent opportunity for the students to develop proven professional and social skills that will help them succeed in school, in their careers, and in life. CSz MKE teaches improv with a core tenet of harnessing soft skills, such as public speaking, confidence, conversational tools, stage presence, and more.
Workshops are on Sunday afternoons, from 11:00am to 2:00pm, at CSz Milwaukee, 420 S. 1st Street. There is a 30 minute period in every week for lunch. The students will have several weeks of workshop and instruction, followed by a ‘regular season’ of matches with other teams, and finally a Tournament that culminates in a Championship match. Students will play using the games and skills they learn throughout the beginning portion of the season.
Cost for registration is $150 per student. Each student is given two t-shirts (red and blue) for them to keep.
December 8th and 15th – Orientations will be held for students to meet one another, and get a more in-depth interaction with the coaches and what will all take place in the workshops and matches. Parents are encouraged to attend, meet the staff and coaches, and ask any and all questions they may have!
Workshops will run from January 12th to March 1st. Throughout these weeks, students will be introduced to over 25 games, warm-ups, and exercises as well as learning the foundations of improvisation.
The ‘regular season’ matches will take place on Sundays early afternoon March 8th thru April 5th. There will be 2-3 matches per week, using 4-6 teams each. Tickets for these days are available for $5 per person (students registered for the High School League get free entry).
The tournament will be April 19th, April 26th, and will culminate with the championship on May 3rd.
Students receive free entry to any of our official ComedySportz matches that are performed on weekends, on Fridays at 7:30 and 10:00pm, and on Saturdays at 3:00pm, 7:30pm, and 10:00pm. These shows are for all ages!
