Improv Audition!


THE IMPROV IMPS: Playing for Keeps

Sat. April 6th 12-3pm

at The Pinch 3548 14th St NW, Washington, DC 20010

After four years, the Improv Imps are holding auditions for the first time! We are looking for 2-3 new troupe mates.

About Us:

Although we originated as a short-form troupe, we love long-form, sketch and experimentation! We are always looking to grow creatively, so this year we formed a sketch writing team, and are currently working on putting together a full show production for the Fall, incorporating various elements of improv, sketch and our own imaginations.

What are we looking for in a new troupe mate?
Chemistry of course is always important. We are looking for someone who will lend balance to the existing troupe–for example, we need a bit more estrogen in the group right now. We are also looking for someone who loves character work. And finally, we want a commitment to the troupe, to continuing improv education and our practice & performance schedule. Here are some deets.

**We Practice on Saturdays 11am-2pm in the Merrifield area of Fairfax, VA We expect a min. of 80% attendance
**No improv snobbery–we do it all and are open to trying lots of things, at least once.
**Be hungry to perform (we perform several times a month and actively pursue opportunities.)
**We produce most of our own shows and do very few ensemble shows.

What Will the Audition Be Like?
It will be like joy wrapped in rainbows and covered in Swiss chocolate. We will run the audition like a typical Imps practice, so expect warm ups, improv exercises, scene work, a Harold or other long form format and possibly some short form games. The goal is always to have fun and just play. If we sense some chemistry, we will invite you to our next practice and see if you feel it too:) If not, we’ve met some new improv friends!

We can’t wait to play with you! :):)
