Training Camp: TNM’s Summer Intensive

TNM is calling hungry improvisers to venture south and take on the challenge of our Training Camp Summer Intensive, a five-day round-the-clock adult improv camp that lets you learn & practice with a group of like-minded performers for 6 hours a day, then perform a killer show every night in front of a paying audience.

This year’s Training Camp runs June 18th – June 22nd with classes every day from 9:00a-5:00p and a show every night. 



What if improvisors trained like athletes?  What if there were a gym for improvisors – a space where you could get the type of individual attention, level of challenge, and exceptional amount of reps you need to make you sweat as a performer?  That place exists.  It’s called Training Camp. A program offering rigorous performance-based improv intensives with sessions every summer, winter, and spring.

Training camp is for the improvisor with the heart and drive of an athlete.  We seek the type of improvisor who never stops pushing, who watches shows with an eye for every single detail and move, who craves more practice, more stage time, and more challenge.  If this sounds like you – whether you’re a newbie or an old pro – we invite you to take part in our next session.  Spend your days learning and exploring a badass city, spend your nights performing in shows before paying audiences, and return to your home troupe a finely tuned improv athlete with the skills needed to take your game to the next level.

Training Camp Summer Intensive (early bird)

Class starts Monday, June 18, 2018 and runs daily until Friday, June 22, 2018 with class every day from 9:00am-5:00pm and a show every evening. $375 until May 1st and then price increases to $400.



We believe that you learn best by doing.  Training Camp takes the rigorous TNM curriculum – heavy on character, game, patterns, and devices – and packs it into an improv bootcamp designed to give participants an exceptional (almost absurd) amount of scene work.


We believe that you need more time in front of real audiences. Rather than waiting for one recital show at the end of the week, Training Camp requires participants to perform every night in front of paying audiences.


We believe that an improv intensive should be affordable. Training Camp – with its 35 hours of improv class, nightly performances, and access to the best TNM faculty  costs less than $400. That’s about 4 months’ worth of improv exercising, smooshed into one unforgettable week. Get here.
