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

We’re happy to announce our Summer Comedy Camp’s themes! Every year we choose 2 suggestions to base our Summer Camp around, much like how our incredibly talented staff would start an improv show!


First Session (June 16 – July 11):


“Monster Madness”

Second Session (July 14 – August 8):


“Winter in Summer”


Besides our standard beach trips, talent shows, and theme days, we’ll be debuting our all-new comedy-based curriculum! With improv, sketch, and much more, we’ll be discovering the keys to fun and entertaining comedy we all can enjoy! 

There’s still room in both sessions to have fun! Send this form to 603 Greenwood Ave, Glenview IL 60025, or email it to to register today!

As Winter (hopefully) turns into Spring, Play On’s excited to open auditions for our next show – Toy Story! We’ll be performing a Double-Feature performance of both the 1st and 2nd Toy Story one after the other – all in the same amount of time as our regular shows!

And since we’re putting up 2 distinct shows, we’ve decided to have 2 separate auditions!

Toy Story 1 auditions will be held on Saturday, March 15th at 2-4pm, and be located at Open Studio, 903 Sherman Ave, Evanston, IL

Toy Story 2 auditions will be held the next Thursday, March 20th at 4-6pm, and will be located at The Book Market in The Glen, 2651 Navy Blvd, Glenview, IL


If you would like more information, please email, or call 847-337-9614, and make sure to follow us @PlayOnComedy. We look forward to playing with you!
