Announcing: UCBTLA's 2017 Maude Night Line-Up!

Postby bethappelUCB » Thu Feb 16, 2017 6:34 pm

Hello UCB! I am thrilled to announce the 2017 UCBTLA Maude Teams!

Maude Teams are UCB's house sketch teams. They bring together the best sketch writers and sketch performers in Los Angeles to produce brand new half-hour sketch comedy shows every month at UCB Sunset.

Between people who submitted writing packets and those who auditioned to be actors, there were hundreds of people vying for very, very few spots (nearly 600 people, in fact!). Thank you so much to everyone who submitted. It was incredible to see the amount of talent in our community and I wish we could have offered many, many more people spots on teams.

If you weren't placed on a team, please don't take it as a reflection of your talent. And remember, Maude Night is just one show at the theater. I hope everyone will continue to be involved in UCB via one of our many, many other shows and opportunities.

And now, please join me in congratulating everyone who's part of the 2017 UCBTLA Maude Night Line-Up!

The great Maude team Nephew is retiring from Maude after four amazing years! See an hour of their best sketches at their final Maude Night show on Wednesday Feb 22nd, 8:30pm at UCB Sunset.

Huge thanks to the Maude Committee who put in a ton of time reading packets, watching auditions and helping create the teams. And an even huger thanks to Lindsay Lefler and the Work Study Students for making sure everything ran smoothly. Huger thanks yet to Phil, Codi, and Kerry, the always awesome UCB Sunset building managers. And, the biggest thanks of all to Arik Cohen, UCBTLA's wonderful Artistic Assistant for buying us a bunch of fruit snacks to eat.
