1. Does Character 101 counts towards fulfilling the multi-week improv class requirement? There is some improv in the class.

2. I signed up for an improv 401 multi-week class that ends on Sept 28, 2016, but the final class show is on Oct 2, 2016. Would that count? The deadline is Oct 1, but Oct 2 seems so achingly close.

Thank you for your help.


ANSWER: 1. No. Character 101 is not an improv class. 2. If the final class session is 9/28, then it falls under this category:
***If you are enrolled in a class that has it’s final session after the sign-up deadline of August 29 but before October 1, your instructor will let us know if you are eligible to audition. We will reach out with an audition slot by September 6th. This special audition eligibility does not necessarily mean you are approved for advanced study.***

When it comes to this contingency:
***If you are enrolled in a class that has it’s final session after the sign-up deadline of August 29 but before October 1, your instructor will let us know if you are eligible to audition. We will reach out with an audition slot by September 6th. This special audition eligibility does not necessarily mean you are approved for advanced study.***


Which box should we check on the application form?
Which eligibility requirement do you fulfill? Please check all that apply. *

-I have been approved for Advance Study (in either LA or NY) AND have completed a multi-week UCB Improv Training Center course (in either LA or NY) that had it's final session between October 1, 2015 and October 1, 2016

-I have been on a UCBLA or UCBNY Harold / Maude / Digital Team AND have taken a multi-week improv class since October 1, 2014 that had it's final session before October 1, 2016

-I have been on a UCBLA Mess Hall team since October 1, 2015

Hi,

RE: So, if the 410 ends before 8/29 and you are approved for Advanced Study, you can audition. And if the 410 ends between 8/29 and 10/1, the instructor will get in touch with me directly if he or she thinks you should be eligible to audition. At that point, the Artistic Associate or I will reach out to you with an audition slot.

Specifically students in 410 and 401 that ends between 8/29 and 10/1.

In an effort to not inundate teachers with requests, how will the teacher know a student is interested in auditioning? Or should a student notify their 401 or 410 teacher that they are interested in auditioning directly since it wouldn't be assumed otherwise?

ANSWER: Teachers will assume students are interested in auditioning. As such, they will give me a comprehensive list of students who should be eligible to audition. At that point, when we reach our to students to offer audition slots, those students can decide whether or not they want to audition. No need to make any requests to your teacher.

So - just being paranoid. I'm *pretty* sure I signed up for an audition time slot, but now I'm second guessing myself. Is there some way to confirm that I have, in fact, signed up?

The last advanced class I took finished on September 8, 2016. If I register for Johnny Meek's class that starts on Aug 13, will I be eligible for Harold auditions this year?

ANSWER: There's no real way to confirm. I suppose you could email laharold@ucbcomedy.com to check.
