Hello UCBTLA! Submissions are officially OPEN for the next round of Characters Welcome, UCBTLA's official CHARACTER TEAM!

Auditions for the next cycle will be held at UCB Sunset on November 1st, 2nd and 3rd. This team will perform once a month for 6 months. At the end of 6 months, auditions will be held again and a new team will be formed.

***Only questions answered by the Artistic Director or Artistic Manager on this thread at will be considered official answers.***

***Please do not ask questions about eligibility or auditions on Facebook groups, via email, or to Christine, Haley, Greg or any UCB Theatre or Training Center employees.***

Character team details:

Directors: Christine Bullen, Haley Hepworth & Greg Roman
Rehearsals: Sundays, 5pm-7:30pm

Sunday rehearsals are MANDATORY. If you are not able to rehearse every Sunday, do not audition. Attendance issues may result in removal from the team.

Characters Welcome team members compensate the directors a reasonable coaching fee. This fee is set by a discussion between the directors and the team.

Character team members develop a 2-4 minute character piece to be showcased at the monthly show. Performing in the show is not guaranteed. The directors will choose which pieces are chosen and will also host each show.
