I'm working on the website for a theater that teaches improv classes and sketch classes, and also features improv shows and sketch shows.

The front page of the website lists: "Improv and Sketch Classes and Shows," which sounds okay, but doesn't strike me as particularly clear or well-put.

Is there a succinct way to express this 2x2 idea, or can anyone suggest a concise way to write around this idea?

    At the very least a comma between the pairs would help. It's arguably incorrect to use a semicolon, but it would be clear what you mean. Even a line break could work if you're laying out something akin to a title.

  • Actually, a line break works really well, thank you!

Classes and Shows in both Improv and Sketches?


It would be clearer to add an extra word to avoid unduly linking the terms between the two ands.

Classes and Shows about Improv and Sketch


I would make a title and subtitle.

Improv and Sketch. Our [offer of] Classes and Shows
