We serve all students

As a new nonprofit organization, our primary focus is a free, core program offered to our partner public schools in the Philadelphia School District. At the same time, we believe deeply in the value of our program and are committed to sharing the benefits of our work as widely as we are able. To this end, we offer three types of programming for all school partners who are not our current priority partners (with pricing on a sliding scale).

Student-Facing Workshops

Our Signature program is our main offering, but we also offer afterschool and one-time workshop options. We can tailor our programming to your school's needs. Please contact us to learn more about pricing.

Provide all students in a given cohort a robust introduction to improv, during classtime; focus on skills like active listening, speaking publicly with confidence, leadership 

10 in-class hours

Signature Program

Expose students to improv and build curiosity to learn more;  choose a target theme: "communication", "collaboration", or "storytelling"; with follow-up materials

90 mins - 3 hours w/ optional follow-ons

One-Time Workshop

Provide an intro to improvisation for interested students; develop skills like active listening, speaking publicly with confidence, and also delve further into scenes and acting

5-10 hours; flexible timing/length

Afterschool Program

If you have a specific goal or programming you would like Unscripted to be a part of, please let us know! We will work with you best serve your students



All workshops will be taught by one of Unscripted’s professional teaching artists (professional improvisers and improv teachers, trained for classroom settings). Lesson plans will be drawn from our innovative, standards - aligned curriculum.

Professional Development

We’re empowering our educators to bring improv into their classrooms, whether in person or remotely, by offering Act 48 professional development workshops (accredited by PA Dept. of Education) online. We will keep facilitator : participant ratios low, as workshops are designed to be interactive, relevant, and fun.
