Defiant Monkey Improv - A Fresh Approach to School Programs

Defiant Monkey has several programs designed to tie into your school’s curriculum, and they are customizable to your individual needs!

School Programs

Defiant Monkey Improv - now serving the Greater Rochester, NY area
Defiant Monkey Improv - Science on the Brain school program

In the all-new Science on the Brain Improv Show, scientific principles come to life through improvised theatre, engaging students with scientific ideas in a different way than they traditionally have in school, which helps reinforce the idea that science is everywhere!

All Together Now!

Defiant Monkey's actors use teamwork all the time. Students will see this teamwork in action as their suggestions come to life in improvised scenes illustrating the use of teamwork between improvisers. Student volunteers will be brought on stage to perform in improvisational games that use several performers. The aspects of working well as a team will follow students throughout their lives, wherever they may go and whatever they do!

Trust Yourself!

Have you ever been given an opportunity, but didn't take it because you were unsure of yourself? Simply by experiencing and participating in the show, students will be introduced to improvisational theater. Students will see how trusting in yourself and in your partner is crucial to success. Volunteer students will join us on stage in the safety of proven performance games. They will learn to trust themselves and others and be able to think on the spot.
