DCM Indie Improv Tournament 2017

Postby Apruzzese » Wed May 24, 2017 3:52 pm

The UCBTNY is excited to announce the DCM Indie Improv Tournament 2017!

The tournament is for NY based Indie teams who will square off against one another for a slot in this year's Del Close Marathon! It will be held the week of DCM (6/19-6/22) and it will be hosted by the previous winner, New Greta!

The winner will get a slot at DCM 19 (on Saturday, 6/24 at 9:20am at Magnet!)

Your team is only eligible for this tournament if:
-Your team applied, but was not selected for DCM 19. If you didn’t apply then you can’t submit, Bye, Felicia!!!
-Your team is available for all the scheduled dates/times for matches in the tournament. (we will not take scheduling requests).
-Your team regularly practices with a coach (Don't lie, because we'll be checking, baby!).
-Your team is not associated with any theater (UCB, PIT, Magnet) this is for INDIE teams.
-Your team must be NY based!

The rules of the tournament are as follows:
-24 teams enter. There will be 3 rounds (24, 6, 2).
-All matches will be decided by audience vote (no judges).
-Every team gets 15 minutes per set each round until the last round, where they will get 20.
-If there is a tie both teams will do 5 minute sets which the audience will vote for again.
-Players can only be on one team. Meaning: if you're on multiple indie teams, you can only apply with one.
-There will be a "cage match" clock on or around stage that will determine the blackout.

The first round of the Tournament will be held on the following days and times at the Theater for the New City - Community Theater
1st Round - Monday, June 19th - 7:30pm, 9:00pm
1st Round - Tuesday, June 20th - 7:30pm, 9:00pm
1st Round - Wednesday, June 21st - 7:30pm, 9:00pm

The Final two rounds will be held on the below day at Theater for the New City - Johnson Theater.
2nd & 3rd Round - Thursday, June 22nd - 7:30pm (semi-finals), 9:30pm (CHAMPIONSHIP)

Reservations for each show will become available on UCBtheater.com once the teams have been selected (except the last two rounds, which will become available after the first round). Tickets can be reserved and paid for online - cash only accepted 20 minutes before the showtime if available.

*If after you apply to the tournament, your indie team is selected for DCM as a late addition to the schedule, please let us know so we may remove you from consideration for the tournament!*
