Electives-ONLINE! and IN-PERSON!

The Pack’s core Improv and Sketch Programs represent what we consider to be the foundations for good performers and writers. We also offer elective workshops throughout the year because a good performer never stops learning. Our electives help students expand their performance abilities and refine their understanding of different approaches to the work. Our commitment to adjustment, adaptation and evolution is what separates The Pack Theater from other comedy schools.

PLEASE READ

During the current Covid-19 pandemic The Pack Theater is unable to offer our normal classes which would meet at our theater and class spaces in Hollywood, CA.

So we are going ONLINE!

We will be utilizing the ZOOM platform.
Please download the Zoom meeting software to enable you to join the class, FREE at https://zoom.us.
You will be sent the meeting room code shortly before the class is scheduled to start.
As we are based in Los Angeles, all class times are PST.

Once you reserve your spot in class with a deposit the remaining balance is due prior to the start of the first class. If you are in need of a payment plan or have any questions, feel free to contact Pack owner, Miles Stroth at [email protected]

Thanks and stay safe!

Getting Representation and Breaking into the Industry

After having written your first or second sample, you may think to yourself, “What now?” When you ask a writer how they broke in or got repped, the answers tend to be very specific to the point where you may feel they’re not very applicable. The truth is there’s no one way to break in or get repped. And in this class, we go over many different, applicable ways you can break in and get representation.
