You wanna learn how to write killer sketches? This is your first step. In these weekly classes, you’ll explore the technical aspects of sketch, collaborate with your teacher and classmates, and eventually put up a sketch recital on TNM’s stage in front of actual paying audience members. This is how you learn to do the thing.


Maggie Ritchie is a transplant from Chicago but is super happy to live in New Orleans. She has an MFA in Creative Writing from Columbia College Chicago. She has performed her sketches in Hell Yes Fest and in several other shows with the sketch troupe Girlfriend. Girlfriend won the first New Orleans Knockout show.

NOTE: Unused classes are refundable on a case-by-case basis and there is a non-refundable 10% cancellation fee if you cancel your class within 24 hours of your first class.


All refund requests must be in writing. Students seeking a refund or a partial refund, should send an e-mail to the Conservatory Director as soon as they have decided to withdraw. Each refund request will be processed within 30 days of such request. Refunds may be issued for courses upon student withdrawal under the following provisions:

8-Week Courses:

  • A full refund of deposit/tuition (minus a $25 processing fee) is available only when withdrawal notification is received by noon (12pm) three business days prior to the start of the course. For example, refund requests for a Monday night class must be received by Wednesday at noon. Requests for Saturday or Sunday classes would have to be received by Tuesday at noon.
  • For withdrawal after the start of the first session of the class, students will receive a refund of their tuition/deposit minus a $25 processing fee and a $25 administration fee.
  • For withdrawal after the start of the second session of the class, students will receive 25% of their tuition/deposit.
  • After the third class, there are NO Refunds or Partial Credits.


Because of their lower price, most workshops are non-refundable, but we will consider refund requests on a case-by-case basis.
