To inquire about booking a private performance lab, email with the following information:

  • Online or in-person lab (In-person labs take place at the BayFront Theatre)

The private group labs give advanced improvisers more autonomy in their experience.  For the private groups, improvisers will start by gathering their own group of players and choosing one of BATS’ fantastic coaches.  The group will work with the coach to determine what sort of instruction they want— a specific genre or skill, ongoing workshop or weekend intensive.  It’s up to you!  You work with BATS to decide the times and dates.  Your group may even decide to perform and will work with the coach to plan and rehearse for your show(s).

Cost: $200/hr.
Prerequisite: F6 or equivalent OR coach approval.
