Registering for classes is quick and easy!

You can register for the class of your choice below. We use the Eventbrite service for registration. The cost of registration is $250 and also includes free admission to shows at ColdTowne Theater. Each class level is eight weeks long and meets for two hours every week. (If a class is canceled for a holiday or some other reason, we’ll go one week longer to make it up.)

Guaranteed Fun!

We guarantee you’ll have fun in your Level 1 classes. If you don’t enjoy your first class, just let us know and we’ll refund the cost of your tuition. Level 1 refunds will not be issued after the second class.

For Levels 2 through 6, refunds are not issued after the first class.

Discounts Available

  • Returning students get $25 off with early registration! Students who register during Early Bird Registration automatically receive a $25 discount. Once the previous session has ended, registration reverts to full price.
  • Intern discount. We have an internship program which provides discounts on classes for students who volunteer at the theater. Apply here.

The Fine Print

All students must have paid in full or have a payment plan in place before the first class of a session.

Students who have graduated from another improv theater’s yearlong training program can start at Level 2. We ask that all other students start at level 1 regardless of their experience.  If you meet the criteria and want to start at Level 2, please send an email to ctconservatory@gmail.com before registering.

Register now!

Classes will sell out, so carpe diem! If the class you want is sold out, email ctconservatory@gmail.com to get on the waitlist.

MAKE SURE YOU’RE SIGNING UP FOR THE RIGHT CLASS! We’ll happily return your tuition in the event of a mistake, but Eventbrite can take up to a week to process refunds (and we’ll still have to charge you the processing fee).

Questions? Concerns? Need to set up a payment plan? Email ctconservatory@gmail.com.
