Directions & Parking

  1. Whether you take the constantly backed up 77 or one of the many versions of Sharon Road, eventually get to South Blvd.
  2. If you’re heading south on South Blvd (redundant), after you cross over Scaleybark/Old Pineville intersection, continue for .2 miles and our location is on the right, two entrances past the elephant.
  3. If you’re heading north on South Blvd (shouldn’t we call it North Blvd now?), We’re between Woodlawn and the Scaleybark/Old Pineville light. Our location is on the left (follow the 4200 sign)

Parking is available throughout the entire complex, so if you don’t see a spot right in front of our location, you’ll have plenty of options. Cars cannot be left over night.

We highly encourage you use a ride sharing app, like RideRose — our corporate sponsor — to minimize parking usage, to help the environment, and so you can take advantage of our proximity to breweries!!

There’s also the Scaleybark light-rail stop which is a short 5-10 minute walk to our front door.

Our Philosophy

When we started a new improv theater, we set out to be very intentional in our approach not just to the art, but to how we expect our students & performers to conduct themselves — both on and off the stage.

On Improv

We strive to engage and inspire our audiences with a style of improvisational theatre that is driven by dynamic and authentic characters. Through the exploration of life’s themes and the wide array of human emotion, we share stories with our audiences that aim to not only entertain, but to affect.

On Respect & Equality

Our community desires to go beyond simply trying to brush away the negativity of racism, misogyny, and the rest. We strive to be intentional in promoting the value, the impact, and the necessity of positive respect and equality among all performers.



Welcome to the Comedy Arts Theater of Charlotte

In our mission statement, we set out to establish an all-inclusive gathering space — and that is what we’re doing. Our new location went through the city and county to have a second uni-sex restroom installed, which is certified ADA compliant by a team of architects and engineers. We are excited to welcome everyone in the community who is looking to support local arts. CATCh does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, sexual preference, or disability.

Students with disabilities or any special needs are asked to contact CATCh before registering for a course so that we can ensure the best possible class or performance experience.
