Hello UCBTLA,

This is your official Maude Submission and Characters Welcome Audition “Save the Date.”

***Please read this post in its entirety before asking questions. Only questions answered by the Artistic Director or Artistic Assistant in this thread will be considered official answers.***

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

CHARACTERS WELCOME
Audition dates: 12/14-12/17

Eligibility requirements are TBD and will be announced when the official submission form is made available. Requirements will likely be similar to those listed here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=84271

Note: Contrary to what the last Characters Welcome audition announcement said, if you auditioned for Characters Welcome in May 2017 and you fulfill the eligibility requirements, you WILL be allowed to audition.

MAUDE TEAMS
Acting submissions will be due January 8th, 2018
Round 1 -- Live Auditions will be held 2/2, 2/3, and 2/4

Writing submissions will be due January 8th, 2018

We anticipate teams will be announced by Friday, February 16th, 2018

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

Eligibility will be as follows (please note that in future years eligibility requirements MAY BE DIFFERENT. These are the requirements for UCBT Los Angeles Maude 2018 auditions ONLY).

Writer Requirements:

1) Approved for Advanced Study Sketch Writing before January 8th, 2018.

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, 2017 and January 8th, 2018 OR wrote a Spank show at UCB that "got a run" between Jan 2017-Jan 2018 OR have been on a sketch team that has won Sketch Showdown between Jan 2017-Jan 2018.

All current and former members of Harold, Characters Welcome, Maude and Digital/Beta Teams at UCBTLA or UCBTNY 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 Assistant are "official."

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

"All current and former members of Harold, Maude and Digital/Beta Teams at UCBTLA or UCBTNY are eligible to submit as a writer or as an actor."

I noticed the Characters Welcome team is not mentioned. If you are on Characters Welcome are you eligible to audition?

I noticed that during last years Maude Team Submission post, one of the requirements of writers is to attend all rehearsals. Unfortunately, I work full time during the week and wouldn't be able to make the rehearsal times listed (between 3PM-6PM). I see there is a submission requirement exception form and wondered whether this issue historically meets the criteria for an exception? Thanks!
