5 stars for Scott and Planet Improv is a no-brainer! Scott is doing more important work through improv than what you might see on the surface. He’s been leading our group of high school girls (up to 125 girls in a group) at our annual Leadership Summit for the last three years. Our kids have a blast, laugh, and most importantly, come out of their comfort zones and build relationships that, as a result of how Scott runs his sessions, have the foundation to last forever. We strongly recommend getting involved in the positive experiences that Planet Improv provides!

We recently invited Scott Pacitti of Planet Improv to facilitate an improv event as a fundraiser for our high school theatre boosters. Boy, what fun it was to watch him engage the students in this theatrical art form. The workshop was so much fun and the event itself provided such a unique and comedic night of entertainment. Scott is very good at his craft. He made this event so easy and has such a generous approach to supporting students, theatre programs, and the improvisational art form. Much can be gained watching great minds and great wit at play. I highly recommend Scott and Planet Improv.
Thank YOU so much for an amazing class. Weston absolutely love it last year and this year…definitely his favorite camp ever.
Super fun! I loved getting out of my comfort zone and not being afraid to mess up! Highly recommend.

Very fun and energetic. It helped my step out of my comfort zone by talking to imaginary talking toilet paper XD
Scott from Planet Improv came and led a workshop at our school for our elementary students. We had so much fun! He was brilliant at interacting with the kids (and adults.) There was tons of laughter. We can’t wait to have Planet Improv return!
Great experience!! I had a great time and also gained life skills!!
