Electives-ONLINE!

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.
