Postby bethappelUCB » Tue Oct 18, 2016 1:16 pm

Hello UCB LA,

This is your official Maude Submission “Save the Date.”

Acting submissions will be due January 9th, 2017
Round 1 -- Live Auditions will be held 2/3, 2/4, and 2/5
Round 2 -- Live Callbacks will be held 2/10 and 2/11

Writing submissions will be due January 9th, 2017

We anticipate teams will be announced by Thursday, February 16th, 2017

Writing packets and actor video submission guidelines are TBD and will be announced at least a month before submission deadline.

Eligibility will be as follows (please note that in future years eligibility requirements MAY BE DIFFERENT. These are the requirements for UCB Los Angeles Maude 2017 auditions ONLY).

Writer Requirements:

1) Approved for Advanced Study Sketch Writing before January 9th, 2017.

AND

2) Have taken a multi-week class at UCB (includes sketch, improv, storytelling or character) that had one or more sessions between January 1st, 2016 and January 9th, 2017 OR wrote a Spank show at UCB that "got a run" between Jan 2016-Jan 2017 OR have been on a sketch team that has won Sketch Showdown between Jan 2016-Jan 2017.

Actor Requirements:

1) Must have completed at least two multi-week UCB classes (includes sketch, improv, storytelling or character) before January 9th, 2017.

AND

2) Have taken a multi-week class at UCB (includes sketch, improv, storytelling or character) that had one or more sessions between January 1st, 2016 and January 9th, 2017 OR performed in a Spank show at UCB that "got a run" from Jan 2016-Jan 2017 OR have been on a sketch team that has won Sketch Showdown between Jan 2016-Jan 2017.

All current and former members of Harold, Maude and Digital Teams at UCB LA or NY are eligible to submit as a writer or as an actor.

You may submit as both an actor and a writer. This will not affect your chances in either category.

If you have any questions please ask them in this thread-- only answers from the Artistic Director or Artistic Associate are "official."

Please don't ask about specific packet or video submission guidelines, as I mentioned above those aren't determined yet.

Two years ago I "almost" got on a team as a writer, so last year Mike had sent an email to those of us who almost made it that we could apply again last year without having taken a UCB class in the last year. Wondering if that was still the case again this year since I ended up almost getting on again. Thanks!!

Hi!

Does completing 2 mult-week UCB improv classes (ie: 301 and 401) satisfy this requirement for acting auditions? Or does it need to be 2 different types of classes?

1) Must have completed at least two multi-week UCB classes (includes sketch, improv, storytelling or character) before January 9th, 2017.

Thanks!

For Writers:

To clarify, to be eligible you need to have taken Sketch 301 AND be accepted for Advanced Study for Sketch before the January deadline?

ANSWER: You need to have been approved for Advanced Study Sketch Writing before January 9th, 2017. If you have questions about the training center, you should contact them or refer to last year's Maude Save the Date where Johnny explained this well.

Hi Beth,

I had a class starting Dec 12th 2015 - Feb 6, 2016. Does that fulfill the class requirement of ave taken a multi-week class at UCB in the last year (I am unsure if the first class of the class has to be after Jan 9th, 2016)?

Thanks so much!

ANSWER: Good question! I updated the initial post to clarify and, yes, the class you describe would fulfill that requirement.

For former Harold, Maude, and Digital Teams being eligible. Does that extend to MessHall teams or no?

Sincerely,
