Do you know how to make people laugh? Are you the life of the party? Do you play well with others? Then our NSHS Improv Troupe needs you to audition to be part of our team! Audition info packets are here.
WHAT IS IMPROV?
Improvisational Acting, or improv, is on-the spot-acting [no scripts] based on audience suggestions.
WHO SHOULD AUDITION?
We are looking for people who ARE outgoing, outspoken, open-minded, and outrageous. We are looking for people who CAN make people laugh, be sociable in a variety of situations, play well with others, and take a joke.
WILL THERE BE REHEARSALS?
Even though actors make it up on stage in front of an audience, there is plenty of rehearsal. Improv comedy has tons of rules and routines that make the performances family-friendly yet exciting to audiences.
WHEN ARE THE REHEARSALS?
Improv rehearses twice a week, typically on a Monday, after school and one lunch time TBD. Rehearsals are mandatory; improvisers who miss rehearsals won’t get to perform.
There will be two Saturdays when we will be trained by San Jose’s Comedy Sportz improv troupe. Yep, training from professionals! We are negotiating these dates and will keep you posted!
The troupe will rehearse every day the week your show opens.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A SHOW?
The improv troupe divides up into two fiercely competitive teams and competes via games and scenes with input from the audience. Shows last about an hour. If we have the energy, we will have two performances each night.
HOW DO I AUDITION?
Go to Room 911 to get your audition packet and sign up. You can’t audition if you don’t sign up. If you want to dip the toe in the water of acting, this is a great opportunity to do so.
