I really didn't know what to expect from KidProv. They told me it was where kids get on stage and start acting. When we got there I was pleasantly surprised.
I don’t take theatre as one of my electives, I haven't taken any theatre classes, I haven't even been to anything like KidProv. I never liked following a script. Maybe it's just the rebellious teenager, or the GT student in me, but I don’t like people telling me what to do. I like to come up with things on the fly. That’s exactly what KidProv allowed me to do. I got to decide where the story went.
There were no rules or restrictions for me to follow. Just getting up on stage and thinking fast, being reactive, and me being me. It was a great opportunity to express myself and make people laugh along the way. They introduced it in such an intriguing and interactive way, I just had to get up on stage and try it for myself.
The audience chose the location and what the character was doing. It didn’t matter where or what they said, I had to roll with it. I’m not going to go into full detail on what it was about, but apparently I did well enough to earn myself a spot in this newsletter. KidProv did an amazing job of letting me roam and explore the possibilities of improv. My name is Jackson and I highly recommend you attend the next FGA event.
