We have almost $3,100 in fixed, ongoing expenses per month. While we are trying to get assistance from the SBA, we don't qualify for help provided in the CARES Act. We must have your help during this time, or we may not be able to reopen CATCh when the restrictions have ended (or eased for theaters).
We are offering CATCh merchandise for sale (more to come).
You can also pre-purchase classes and shows through gift cards (redeemable once the quarantine is lifted), which directly add to our ability to pay our expenses.
We also accept donations through our PayPal account.
If you're not in a position to help financially, please share this request with your networks.

CATChing Up is a new series brought you by the Comedy Arts Theater of Charlotte (CATCh)! We will be interviewing members of the CATCh community during this time of #SocialIsolation on how they're doing, what they love and miss about CATCh/improv and their thoughts on other silly questions!Go see!
At CATCh, we care deeply about our community. Although our venue is small and doesn’t hold very many people, we must consider the safety of our performers, volunteers, and patrons — as well as the greater community — in doing our part to help limit the spread of the coronavirus.
For this reason, we at CATCh have made the difficult decision to cancel all public shows, effective immediately.
Understand that we have not made this decision lightly. As a small, independent theater with barely a year under our belts, the loss of revenue from this decision weighs heavily on us. Even though tickets aren’t being sold, our rent and other fixed expenses (including utilities, insurance, and state & local licenses) continue unabated.
If you have already purchased tickets to any of our cancelled shows, we thank you for your support, and apologize for any inconvenience the change in plans may cause you. Please review the options below and let us know what you prefer:
Please let us know your preference so we can take care of you.
If you are not currently holding tickets to shows, but would still like to support us financially through this time, please consider buying gift certificates for future shows and classes at http://CATCh.theater/merch. We would also like to say “Yes, and…” as we can to your great ideas for ways we can continue the joy of improv during this time. Several people have asked us about making straight donations. You can do this at our PayPal link.
We rely on you to stay afloat so that we can open our doors again soon and bring great comedy back to Charlotte! We thank you in advance for your support.
In the meantime, please keep an eye out for announcements and special events via our social media. We look forward to making you laugh again soon.
With our deepest gratitude,
— Abigail & Kevin
