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, 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.
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.
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.
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.
Our mission is to create an open, inclusive space that meets the needs of improvisers and improv teams. How we go about that is crucial to long-term health of the improv community in Charlotte.
We firmly believe that dedicated improvisers are artists. And artists deserve something for their time, their dedication, their effort, and their commitment to the craft. You won't be able to quit your day job, but it's a start!
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.
A grizzled improv veteran of almost 15 years, Kevin is ultimately responsible for the curriculum and the development of students and teams.
Abigail runs the day-to-day business operations
of the theater, in addition to performing, teaching, & coaching.
