Classes

The Alchemy Comedy Theater is committed to teaching the art of improv comedy throughout the Greenville area. Whether you are interested in performing and joining our company, or simply working on communication and collaboration in the real world, these comedy classes are for you.

Unless otherwise noted, each class runs once a week, for six weeks from 6:30-9:00pm. Each class is a prerequisite for the next level, however there is no comedy or theater experience necessary to take Improv 101. Students get free admission to Alchemy Comedy shows while they are enrolled in a class.

All classes are taught at our training center (400 Birnie St), not the theater. Click on the course you would like to take to purchase online or you can call at (864) 256-1467 if you have any questions.
