I've taken the CTA train to Evanston by myself and have walked over to Piven Theatre. I took Piven Theatre last summer and I just started the fall session. Piven Theatre is right by the Noyes CTA Station and it's easy to take the CTA train there. I enjoy taking classes at Piven Theatre. In my class at Piven Theatre, I play improv games, like where you pass the clap which is when you have eye contact with the person next to you we all stand in a circle. I like the instructors at Piven Theatre and the classes are fun there. Another game we play in my class at Piven Theatre is a game called Kitty Wants A Corner, and we also play a game where we all make different sound effects. There all kinds of games to play at Piven Theatre. I enjoy taking classes there. Piven Theatre is a fun place to play improv games and do all kinds of stuff.

I just signed my son up for his second session at Piven Theatre in Evanston. The class sizes are small, the environment is very accepting, and the type of theatre "work" (theatre games, interactive improv scene work, etc.) is therapeutic. But what sets Piven apart is their willingness to collaborate with parents, teachers and therapists to help make your child have a successful experience. This group knows how to communicate and they worked with me on selecting the appropriate type of class, age group and instructor for my son. One of their instructors teaches a HS Communications mini course at my son's school (a special ed school for students with learning disabilities). PIven seems like a logical choice for theatre-oriented kids who are making the bridge from programs like Special Gifts Theatre to a more mainstream environment. Nice job, Piven!
