Announcing: UCBTLA's 2018 Maude Night Line-Up!

Postby bethappelUCB » Sun Feb 18, 2018 7:16 pm

Hello UCB! I am extremely excited to announce the 2018 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.

Maude Teams are formed at the discretion of the UCBTLA Artistic Director in consultation with the Maude Committee, a collection of experienced directors, coaches, teachers and performers who love sketch comedy.

And now, please join me in congratulating the writers and actors who make up the 2018 UCBTLA Maude Night Line-Up!

As always, we had hundreds of actor and writer submissions and very few spots. A huge thank you to everyone who took the time to submit. I'm always blown away by the extreme talent and weirdness in the UCB community.

If you weren't placed on a team, please remember-- Maude Night is just one show at the theater. Anyone can be involved at UCBTLA via one of our many, many other shows and opportunities. 

Big, giant thanks to: the Maude Committee who put in a ton of time reading packets, watching auditions and helping create the teams; Lindsay Lefler and the Work Study Students for making sure everything ran smoothly; our very patient and wonderful UCB Sunset Managers, Phil, Codi, Kerry, and Greg. And, as always, the biggest thanks of all to UCBTLA's Artistic Assistant, Arik Cohen, for organizing EVERYTHING and only making one salad-related error.
