Safety

Pointless is committed to making our classes a safe and welcoming space for our students. We expect our students to treat each other with respect and to play together safely. If you ever feel threatened, please speak to the teachers, Education Director (eddirector@pointlessbrew.com) or owners (Jason@pointlessbrew.com or Tori@pointlessbrew.com). We also have an anonymous form to report issues: https://goo.gl/forms/byqcFcnLLSq1rMxh2


We expect you to be in a state of mind and body to participate safely in the class work. If you are under the influence of alcohol and/or other mind altering substances (illegal or prescribed), you will be asked to leave class and this will be reported to the Education Director. If this happens again, you will be be removed from the program without refund. There is no smoking, vaping, or e-cigarettes allowed in the PSI.


Sexual Harassment

Pointless Brewery & Theatre’s position is that sexual harassment is a form of misconduct that undermines the integrity of the relationships between and among students and teachers.

  • What is sexual harassment?  Sexual harassment is defined as any unwanted physical, verbal or visual sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other sexually oriented conduct which is offensive or objectionable to the recipient, including, but not limited to: epithets, derogatory or suggestive comments, slurs or gestures and offensive posters, cartoons, pictures, or drawings

  • What is not sexual harassment?  Sexual harassment does not refer to occasional compliments of a socially acceptable nature.  

If you feel that you have been the recipient of sexually harassing behavior, report it immediately to your teacher, or if you feel more comfortable you can contact the Education Director (eddirector@pointlessbrew.com) or owners (Jason@pointlessbrew.com or Tori@pointlessbrew.com). We also have an anonymous form to report issues: https://goo.gl/forms/byqcFcnLLSq1rMxh2


Attendance

We expect you to arrive on time and ready to learn. Missing class diminishes your learning and impacts the cohesion of the group.

  • If you miss more than 2 classes, or more than 6 hours (leaving early/showing up late), you cannot advance to the next level. Students retaking classes because of absences pay full price to repeat.

  • You can make up missed classes (in the same level only, unless approved by the Education Director) during weeks 1-6 only by setting up a makeup time with your teacher (so they can let the other teacher know).

  • You must be at class #7 to participate in the class show.


Class Showcase


Weather Cancellation

There will be a class showcase between weeks 7 and 8 of your class. Tickets are $5 each, and we encourage your friends and family to reserve their tickets, as these often sell out.


On rare occasions, PSI will close because of extreme weather. If your class is cancelled, you will receive an email explaining this, and there will be a post on the main page of the Pointless website, www.pointlessbrew.com.


Food and Drink

We provide water and a few other beverage options for you to enjoy during break time. You are welcome to bring in your own snacks and drinks, but please respect the space and clean up after yourself. No alcohol is allowed in the PSI.


Perks

  • If there are any unsold seats to our Pointless Improv Shows (Fridays & Saturdays at 8 & 10 pm) or Shadow League Shows (Thursdays at 7:30 pm), these will become available to PSI students who are present at the box office, 3014 Packard, five minutes before showtime. Tell the box office staff your name and that you are a current PSI student and you can have one remaining ticket. This offer does not include special events.
  • We also have Improv Jams and The Open Stage on Sunday nights at 7:30 pm, where you have a chance to get up on stage. Visit www.pointlessbrew.com for more details.
  • Once you have successfully completed an improv class, you may retake that class for a discounted rate of $100, providing there are spot left after all the new students have enrolled.


Refund Policy

Students can receive a full refund if they need to drop the class before it begins. After the first or second class, the refund is $175. There are no refunds after the third class begins.
