Annoyance’s brand of “absurd and outrageous” (Theatre Chicago) improv began in 1987 at Chicago’s Cabaret Metro, creating over 100 shows along the way. Their focused approach is said to leave students with a better sense of themselves, as the training is not only centered on the scene itself, but also on the individuals that make up each scene. Not enough evidence of their greatness? Well, their show Coed Prison Sluts ran for an astounding 11 years - the longest running musical in Chicago history!
These classes are geared toward adults, though high-schoolers with parental consent can enroll. The students are allowed to be completely uncensored, so things might get spicy! On Mondays, beginning March 5, Megan Johns will teach Annoyance’s AP2
