WELCOME TO THE TRAINING CENTER
AT THIS TIME, PHILLY IMPROV THEATER IS NOT OFFERING IN-PERSON OR VIRTUAL CLASSES.

 

PHIT continues to monitor the guidance from public health agencies and officials regarding the timing of our re-opening. We currently have no official date for the return of classes in any format. With that in mind, we hope to resume operations in the fall/winter of 2021 for our adult program, and winter/spring 2022 for our youth program. After we finalize a start date for new classes, we expect it will be a few months before we actually have students in classrooms in-person to allow time to rehiring and retraining our staff and instructors. We are excited to welcome students of all ages through out doors again when the time is right!
