Sills Spolin Theater Works’ Aretha Sills is excited to be returning for another week-long summer day camp for kids at Los Angeles Drama Club! Read more and see photos of last year below.

“LADC (The Country’s Youngest Shakespeare Troupe) has always used Viola Spolin’s Theater Games as one of the foundations of the way we approach Shakespeare, and we are thrilled to have Aretha Sills with us this week. Ms. Sills is the granddaughter of Viola Spolin. She studied Spolin’s improvisational theater games for many years with her father, legendary director Paul Sills, creator/director of The Second City and Story Theater. Our Players will be introduced to a series of games and exercises designed to unleash creativity through spontaneity, focus, and play. They will have a chance to develop the sensory awareness and communication skills needed on-stage and in daily life in an encouraging and joyful environment.”

For 2nd through 8th grade (Fall 2019)

Announcing Our New Youth Theater Program in Los Angeles!

It is the process of solving a problem that releases intelligence, talent and genius.
— Viola Spolin

We are excited to announce our new youth theater program!

Generations of kids and adults have learned to act through playing Viola Spolin’s improvisational theater games, among them Oscar and Tony-Award winning actors and directors. Sidecoach Aretha Sills invites young players to explore the play-based method that allows each child’s unique gifts to flourish in a non-competitive, nurturing, and joyful environment. Students of all experience levels are welcome, including aspiring actors and those who just wish to play!
