  • Diversity Scholarship


Push Comedy Theatre is committed to provide sketch and improv-comedy training opportunities to underrepresented communities in the Hampton Roads Area and to develop new and talented performers and performances with unique and diverse points of view to our stage and beyond. Therefore, we are pleased to introduce a new scholarship program at the theatre.

Targeted Groups

The scholarship is for People of Color (African-American, Latinx, Asian, Native American) who are Women, Over 40, Minority Teens or LGBTQI. The scholarship will be awarded to recipients for our pre-teen, teen and adult programs


Scholarships will be awarded to cover all class fees. Applicants may apply for any level class of improv starting with Improv 101 or Sketch 101. Classes should be taken in order Improv 101-501. Students may reapply for future classes upon completing/passing classes taken. The scholarship is open to all of the diverse groups mentioned above, but priority will be given to applicants with the greatest financial need. Once your application is received and reviewed, you may be contacted for further information or interview if needed.

Thank you to any and everyone who decides to apply. We look forward to you joining our community of improv and sketch comedy and bringing further growth and diversity to our theatre!
