After a wonderful summer of comedy and fun at camp, it’s time to start looking towards the future. We’ve got an incredible line-up of activities and shows this year, starting with two major announcements! 

Firstly, we’re forming new Play On Comedy Teams, where the kids will be taught both improv and sketch comedy by our hilarious staff, and have the opportunity to perform at various venues.

At the same time we’ll be holding auditions and rehearsals for our fall show, “Charlie Brown & Snoopy Meet Calvin & Hobbes!” Drawing from the comics and the beloved television specials, our show will be a totally unique and completely exciting re-imagination of those characters we all hold so dear.

This winter we’ll be producing the classic musical “Annie,” including the songs you’ve loved for years. We’re very excited to be bringing the Play On charm to such a fun show.

Coming next spring we’ve got an incredible treat for all the kids — we’re putting on a Shakespeare showcase! We’ve got a hilarious “Winnie the Pooh Shakespeare” show that we’ve coupled with a kid-friendly version of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” It’s sure to be a magical performance!

Finally, we’ve begun to organize a new and exciting program – Playprov, a Mom-and-Tot improv class focusing on having fun with your little ones. Our pilot program is in the East Lakeview neighborhood in Chicago, and we’re looking forward to it being a great hit!

For more information about any of these programs, or to inquire about organizing a Playprov class near you, feel free to email or call (847) 337-9614
