2024-2025 Season: Stages of the Game Teen Improv Troupe (Fringe Edition) AUDITIONS

AUDITIONS FOR STAGES OF THE GAME TEEN IMPROV TROUPE: 2024 FRINGE EDITION 

  • For Students in Grades 8 - 12
  • Coached by E. B. Okung

Teens will explore the basic elements of comedy improv, including listening and agreeing, building relationships, developing characters, exploring emotions, and building environments. Using audience suggestions to inform each scene, the performances will include short form improv games (in the style of the popular TV show, “Whose Line is it Anyway”), and a long form improv performance piece. The troupe will perform two shows in the 2024 Rochester Fringe Festival and rehearsals will take place over a period of six weeks.

AUDITIONS (by appointment only):

  • Saturday, August 3, 3:00 - 5:00 p.m.

CAST:

Calling performers in Grades 8 - 12; serious performers willing to work as part of a team to share their talents, refine their skills, and create a high quality show. 

The troupe will perform two shows in the 2024 Rochester Fringe Festival and rehearsals will take place over a period of six weeks.

Performers of all races, religions, national origins, sexual orientations, gender identities, and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to audition. 

Please consider your commitment to the troupe and show prior to your audition. Each troupe member is crucial to the success of the show. While improv can be unpredictable because you’re making everything up on the spot, we can predict that you will have a lot of fun!
