Founded by teacher/improviser Jill Olson Stuck, Storytown Improv is Chicago's only fully-improvised interactive musical children's theater adventure for kids and their families!
Through introduction to the core concepts of improvisation: cooperation, collaboration, positivity, and creativity, Storytown uses the arts to educate, inspire, and instill confidence in children ages 3-10.
Whether performing, hosting a child's birthday party, or conducting a kid's improv workshop, Storytown improv does more than just entertain!
Storytown's game-based cooperative storytelling technique engages the imagination, promotes problem-solving, teaches communication, and nurtures self expression in a structured and positive way - all while kids are having a blast!
Whether your child's a budding star or a bit bashful, Storytown's rotating cast of talented "townies" is committed to creating an inclusive children's theater experience.
Our trained improv comedy performer/teachers encourage involvement and keep the energy positive, while maintaining a safe space that respects each child's boundaries. Our no-pressure active participation model helps even the shyest child make their mark on the day's adventure!
Now via Zoom, Storytown offers long and short-form children's theater performances and virtual improv workshops.
Storytown improv's unique and entertaining brand of improv comedy-based education is perfect for children's birthday parties, schools, libraries, park districts, festivals, community events, or anywhere you can find kids and their imaginations!
With diverse backgrounds and a wide range of skills, our rotating cast of stellar improv comedy performers come from all over the country - but as residents of Storytown they've all got one thing in common - making exciting children's theater experiences for every kid at the show!
