Please read the entirety of this post, there is a lot of information! Do not call or email for information. Everything you need to know for now is in this post. If you have a question, post it in this thread and the Artistic Director or Artistic Assistant will answer it as soon as possible. Only answers from the AD (Shannon O’Neill) and Artistic Assistant (Bridget Holmes) are official answers.

All auditions will take place at the UCB Training Center. (520 8th Ave, 9th Floor)

New Lloyd Teams/Harold Team Changes: Announced by Thursday, March 8th, 2018
(Subject to change!)

You must be available for the audition days and times (TBA). No other audition times will be available. We will only add additional time if all slots fill up and there are still eligible individuals interested.

Callback dates are Subject to change. If Callback dates change we will announce on this message board. If you are not available for the currently posted dates, you are still allowed to audition in case the dates change and new dates result in your availability. If you get a callback and you are not available, unfortunately we will not be able to schedule a different day/time than announced.


If you are interested in auditioning to be on a UCB Theatre Lloyd team you must meet the following criteria:

You must be approved for Advanced Study Improv Classes and must have completed a UCB Theatre Multi-week (2 or more) Improv Class Between January 1st, 2017 and January 15th, 2018.


You must be approved for Advanced Study Improv Classes and enrolled in an in-session multi-week class during Lloyd sign ups. (January 15th-January 29th)


You were on a UCBT House Improv Team (Harold/Lloyd) between January 2015 - March 2017 and can prove that you have stayed active as an improviser (Indy teams, classes, practice groups).

Exceptions will be granted to the above eligibility on a very limited basis. No one should expect to get an exception. We will announce how to apply for an exception in early January 2018.

Audition Specifics:

First Round:

We will see groups of 8 people every 20 minutes. You will improvise 2 scenes in this audition. You do not/should not prepare anything in advance. This is an entirely improvised audition.

Bring a headshot/resume (stapled/glued) with you. If you do not have a headshot, a recent photograph will suffice. Please make sure the photo looks like you. Resume should be stapled to the back of your headshot so that it is easy to flip the headshot and read your resume.

Please arrive at least 10 minutes prior to your scheduled audition. If you are late or miss your scheduled audition slot, you will not be rescheduled.

Callback information will be given to those that get a callback.

How to Sign Up:

Sign-ups will take place through your dashboard.ucbcomedy.com accounts. Only those that meet the eligibility requirements will be allowed to sign up. We have moved into the future and the days of sign-up sheets on a bunch of folding tables are over.

Sign-ups will be open from January 15th -January 29th. Information on how to sign up via the dashboard account will be released in early January 2018.

Lloyd Teams have a lifetime of roughly 1 year. This is an opportunity for improvisers to rehearse every week and perform twice a month on the UCBT stage to grow as improvisers and learn how to work successfully in a collaborative situation. Consider this a visa that allows performers to visit a really cool country for a year. After a year all visas expire and all Lloyd Teams are retired. There is no guarantee that a Lloyd Performer will be placed on a new Lloyd team or moved to a Harold Team. This is a one year program.

We will release more information on how sign-ups work via your dashboard account in early January 2018.
Artistic Director, UCBT NYC
