Trade Options

One class is a 3-hour, 7-day course plus a grad show. See for a full list of available classes.

  • Package Trade
    • 4 Levels ($309 and under)
      • Earn 4 classes worth of credit in 17 nights.
    • 5 Levels ($309 and under)
      • Earn 5 classes worth of credit in 19 nights.
    • You must first cover Friday and Saturday if they are available. If these nights are not available, then you may get to be scheduled for another day of the week.
    • In order to qualify for the package trade, you must complete the total number of nights within 60 days. If incomplete after 60 days, all remaining credit will be traded through the Individual Class Trade.
    • This is great for students who want to complete our levels program, have the ability to commit to the weekends within a shorter period of time, and get a great deal.
  • Individual Class Trade
    • Earn 1 class worth of credit after the number of hours listed below per class price.
      • 17.9 hours of service per class priced at $279.
      • 19.8 hours of service per class priced at $309.
      • 21 hours of service per class priced at $329.
    • This is best for students who are unsure about taking all 5 levels, want to trade for a non-level class, and/or can not commit to the 16 to 18 nights within 60 days.
  • On-Call FOH
    • Be an on-call FOH when someone needs a shift covered or the FOH Coordinator is unable to get a shift covered.
      • The very first shift must be scheduled with Coordinator for training.
    • Earn credit for classes at the same rate as the Individual Class Trade.
    • On-call Front of House Persons will not be scheduled on a monthly basis.
    • This is great for those who want a low commitment, help out around the Endgames community, and still earn a class credit.

  • If you sign up as a FOH before becoming an employee, all your earned hours are still usable.
  • You will be able to continue covering the front of the house for hours to trade as long as you are no longer an employee with Endgames Improv.
