What's going on at CATCh?

COVID-19 Class Policies

We at CATCh take the COVID-19 pandemic very seriously. Our top concern has and will be on the healthy and safety of our students, performers, and audience members. We have been temporarily shut down since March and we are more excited than anyone to get back to doing what we love: bring joy and laughter to Charlotte!

 

As we begin to offer in-person classes again, we want to assure you that we are continuing to take the pandemic seriously and will be taking extra precauition. We have developed a policy that outlines our commitment to the safety of our students and what we expect in return from them. Please click the button below to read through how we plan on staying safe as we get back to business.

 

And while you're at it, head over to our classes page to see what in-person and virtual offerings are on the horizon!!

 

Be Bold. Say Yes. Wear a Mask.

Statement on Racism

As a theater, CATCh is committed to:

  • Speaking out against racism, on the stage and in our community;
  • Amplifying BIPOC voices; and
  • Continuing to learn and listen to BIPOC leaders.

We're not done. We're having the difficult conversations about how our implicit biases have affected BIPOC actors in our community, and working to both make the change at CATCh, and also to help other theaters do the same.

Creativity Coaching

Our mission at CATCh has always been to empower individuals through the arts, particularly through improv.

With theaters shut down all over (including CATCh), we've been working on ways to continue bringing the affirming lessons of improv to our community. And we realized that, often, the best of what we learn in improv doesn't just show up on the stage — it also changes us: to see new opportunities, to be bold in our ideas and resilient in our mistakes, and always to be authentic.

To that end, Kevin and Abigail are excited to announce CREATIVITY COACHING, an exciting way for us to continue helping others grow in their own artistry during the time of COVID.

Support CATCh

If you are financially able to support CATCh during this period when we have no revenue coming in, it would mean everything to us as we manage this period.


Ways to support

ALL SHOWS CANCELLED UNTIL ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

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:

  • If you would like to continue to support our theater through these challenging times, we invite you to consider donating your ticket back to the theater.
  • You may also support the theater by requesting that your ticket purchase be converted to an electronic gift certificate for use at a future show.
  • Or you may request a refund of your ticket price. We understand that we are not alone in experiencing financial impacts from the coronavirus, and we do not wish to cause or encourage you to take on financial hardship on our behalf. If you wish for any reason to request a refund, please do so without hesitation.

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
