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 was unable to offer our normal classes which would meet at our theater and class spaces in Hollywood, CA.

So we moved ONLINE! Some classes remain Online while others are once again In-Person!
