We offer a wide variety of classes for those looking to dive deeper into their own creativity. From improv to sketch,
storytelling to peronal development, please look through our current offerings to find what's best for you.
For those who wish to — and can commit to — practice & perform improv for the stage as an artist.
Our mission is to create an open, inclusive space that meets the needs of improvisers and improv teams. We accomplish this by providing classes,
rehearsal space, and stage time. In exchange, we receive money (from class and workshop tuition) and volunteer performers for our shows. This arrangement
does not create or imply ownership or contractual obligations upon either CATCh or our students, teams, or performers — except where explicitly agreed
upon by both parties.
Below, we set out in more detail how this affects our relationship with individuals, teams, other improv theaters, and the greater arts community.
Improvisers are artists, and as such should be encouraged to explore and expand their craft as much as possible. In addition, most (if not all)
improvisers are volunteers who perform for the joy of the art form, and are not beholden to the theater in which they train (though professional
courtesies are encouraged).
Teams who perform at CATCh (including house teams & student teams, and the teams formed out of them) are free to perform at other theaters, festivals,
and private events.
In a very divisive time in our culture, we believe that improv can bring people together in unprecedented ways. Every theater, teacher, class, and
classmate can provide a new perspective or challenge to a performer, offering multifaceted, well-rounded growth and world view. We believe that more
opportunities are created when we open ourselves to other perspectives and encourage personal growth in this regard both on and off stage.
CATCh performers are encouraged to explore different styles, skills, and resources to continue to build their personal tool belts. We believe that any
attempt to limit this artistic growth is prohibitive to the performer, art form, and the larger arts community in the region.
A growing, dynamic, and diverse community benefits us all.
CATCh is dedicated to supporting the efforts of all like-minded creative organizations in the region. We will not actively recruit any team or improviser to
abandon their existing situation in favor of CATCh, nor will we disparage the efforts of others who are working in good faith for the betterment of the craft.
Furthermore, we will encourage students and teams to expand their repertoire of skills by taking workshops and classes from new teachers, to participate in
activities sponsored by other theaters and groups, and to actively strive to have the backs of the entire community.
