Announcing: December 2017 UCBTLA Character Team Auditions!

Postby bethappelUCB » Tue Nov 14, 2017 4:53 pm

Hello UCBTLA! I'm very excited to announce auditions for the next round of Characters Welcome, UCBTLA's official Character Team.

Auditions for the next cycle will be held at UCB Sunset on December 14th, 15th, 16th, and 17th. 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 Assistant 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 Anais, Hal, or any UCB Theatre or Training Center employees.***

Who can audition:
In order to audition, you must meet ONE of the following requirements (read carefully -- they are complicated due to the writing & performing nature of the team):

You have completed Character 101 at UCB by December 18th, 2017

OR

You have been accepted into the UCB Advanced Study Program and have completed Improv 401 or higher between December 2015 and December 2017 AND completed a UCB sketch class between December 2015 and December 2017

OR

You've been a performer on a UCB Harold, Maude, or Digital Team in the past 2 years (includes current performers) and have completed a UCB sketch class

OR

You've been a writer on a UCB Maude or Digital Team in the past 2 years (includes current writers) and have completed Improv 401 at UCB

If you do not fulfill any of the above requirements, you are not eligible to audition. Please do not request an exception.

How to Audition:

Auditions will be held on December 14th, 15th, 16th, and 17th.

Auditions will be 3 minutes long (max) and must consist of a minimum of 3 characters, no celebrity impressions.

If you meet the pre-reqs, and you are interested in auditioning for Characters Welcome, you must submit through this google form.

The new Characters Welcome Team will be announced the week of December 18th, and the first rehearsal will be Sunday, January 7th to prepare for the February 14th show.

Rehearsals: Sundays, 6:30pm-9pm

Sunday rehearsals are MANDATORY. If you are not able to rehearse every Sunday, do not audition. Attendance issues may result in removal from the team.

Hi, I'm just wondering. I submitted to the UCBLA Character Team Auditions a few days ago but never got a conformation e-mail, does that mean it never went through or was there never an e-mail being sent out? or maybe I'm being crazy.

Thanks Dave

Hey guys,
So kinda awkward question here. I was planning on submitting to audition for Characters Welcome and had met the eligibility requirements but my dad passed away, completely out of the blue, on November 25th and that threw me for a loop, to say the least. In my grief, I totally let the deadline for submissions pass me by and now I'm kicking myself because I was really hoping to audition. Is there anyway I could still fill out a submission form? I'm available all 4 days of auditions.

My e-mail is spencerlichtman@yahoo.com if you're trying to reach me.

I'm ready to be funny again.

Thanks,
Spencer

Hi Beth,

I am aware I have missed the deadline to submit for an audition spot but I was just made aware of this opportunity as well as the fact that Advanced Study makes you eligible. I’d love to audition.

I figured I’d ask if there’s a space for an audition available? Thanks for considering! I am available the 14th, 16th and 17th if that is helpful.
