THURSDAY 8/29 from 7-9pm at Dangerous Theatre
Dangerous Theatre is building out Fridays for Comedy. Currently we have stand up comedy shows Every Friday at 11pm. We also have sketch/variety shows scheduled at 7:30. Planned to start in October is a weekly Improv show from 9:30 - 10:30. It will be a team competition kind of show with a twist. I am looking for around 10 folks who are interested in becoming a part of a Dangerous Theatre Improv Troupe (may come up with a different name later). Members would not be expected (or allowed) to perform in every Friday show, giving members the option to be in other projects outside Dangerous Theatre. Each show would be made up of two teams made of troupe members or it could be one team of troupe members vs. another improv troupe who wants to join the fun. Dangerous Improv members will have Monday night dinner and drinking Improvarama rehearsals from 6-10. Again, you would not be required to be at EVERY rehearsal, allowing folks to work on other projects. However, the best improv groups are ones who know each other well so these will be a mix of play and socializing. I'll provide dinner for the Monday rehearsals.
BE ADVISED: Dangerous Theatre is ADULT in general. This show will not stress being clean. It will not promote gratuitous swearing or filth but will not censor it either. If you are not comfortable with adult comedy, please don't audition. Due to the adult nature of the shows, you need to be at least 19 to audition.
Dangerous Theatre seats 40 people at tables and 20 general seating (no tables). Table seating is $10.00 and general seating is Free, with cash donations collected at the end of the show. 50% of gross ticket sales plus donation will be split among the players of the show. There will also be a "prize basket" the winning team will receive.
How the fuck do you even audition someone for Improv? You don't. Good improv is dependent on so many factors that I would never give someone one or two improv challenges and think I know their capabilities. So... On Sunday, August 25th at 6pm I will just gather folks who want to do some improv play. I'll have a few folks there to play audience and get suggestions from as well. I will focus less on what folks say but more on how you interact with others, how you seem to feel on stage and and how enthusiastic you are.
I encourage anyone who has done improv and likes it, or has taken a class and wants to do more, or just really wants to be part of a team that works together to make people laugh to come out. I encourage any currently formed improv troupes to come and show me what you got and get on the list to be invited to do the shows with us.
If you plan to come please text Winnie at 720-989-3283 and say "I wanna improv!" so she can gather some info. This is not required. You can also just show up at 7pm ready to go on 8/29.
