I'm extremely excited to announce auditions for UCB LA's first ever Character Team!
Auditions will be held at UCB Sunset the evenings of October 20th and 21st. This team will perform once a month for 6-7 months. At the end of 6-7 months, auditions will be held again and a new team will be formed.
***Only questions answered by the Artistic Director or Artistic Associate on boards.ucbcomedy.com will be considered official answers.***
***Please do not ask questions about eligibility or auditions on Facebook groups, via email, or to Natalie, Anais, Hal, or any UCB Theatre or Training Center employees.*** Who can apply:
In order to audition, you must:

Be a current or former member of a Harold, Maude or Digital Team at UCB LA or NY.
If you are not eligible to audition, don't fret! This will be a trial run for the Character Team and auditions will be held again next Spring. I anticipate that the requirements for the next round of auditions will be significantly less restrictive. But as of now, no exceptions will be made. Do not request an exception.How to Audition:
