Off Book interest form for actors and improvisers
Off Book is an improv show, based on the show Gravid Waters originally produced by the Upright Citizens Brigade. In Off Book, we ask experienced stage actors to memorize one character in a two character scene. The actors then perform those scenes with improviser scene partners who have no idea what scene they are performing. Chaos and hilarity ensues.
This run at HUGE Theater will be directed by Sean Dillon and Maggie Sotos. Performances for this run will be Saturdays 8:00-9:30pm in Jan/Feb 2020, with a mandatory call time of 7:00pm sharp. There are no rehearsals for the show, and the commitment is only for a single performance. Actors are supplied with their scripts a minimum of two weeks before the performance.
For this run, we are seeking performers with a minimum of one year of performing experience. If this is you, please fill out the form below BY NOVEMBER 29 to let us know you're interested. Please note that there are no auditions for our scripted actors, and we will only be auditioning improvisers whose work we need to know better. If we need to schedule you for an audition, we will contact you. Actors, please note: as this is an improv show, it falls outside of Actors' Equity Association's jurisdiction, so both union and non-union actors are welcome to participate. There is no guarantee of pay.
Casting occurs on a rolling basis, so if we cannot utilize your talents, we may not have the opportunity to confirm this until near the end of the run. Please do not hold space on your calendar, we will work with people's changing schedules to the best or our abilities. Interest in this show is generally quite high, and regrettably, we are never able to cast all of the performers we would like. There are a number of factors that go into our casting decisions, of which talent is only one.
Questions and concerns can be directed to Sean at
