Improv and Sketch Class Registration is open!

We are a participating theater with the Black Improv Alliance as part of the 100 Black Improvisers Partnership. Are you Black and interested in improv? BIA is committed to matching improvisers of all ages with theaters throughout the country providing scholarships for their programs. Learn more and 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 before registering.


ColdTowne is so excited to offer in-person improv classes again for sessions beginning in early June! Following CDC protocols and local Austin mandates, we’ll safely laugh in the same room as our friends? What could be better!

Starting in August, we are asking all teachers and students to be fully vaccinated for COVID19 before the first day of class. If you are unable to get vaccinated at this time, consider taking advantage of one of our ONLINE classes.
