Open Call for Performers
December 15, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Who: Toni Nagy and Patrick Donnelly are recruiting for a comedic troupe of actors to perform in an ongoing theatrical extravaganza that will involve sketch comedy, improvisation, and social commentary!!!
What: A sketch comedy and improv acting collective to make you think, cry, laugh, heal, and potentially have a moment where your brain buffers and you ask yourself with a contorted expression of utter confusion, “what is happening here?”
When: First meet & greet, informal rehearsal is Nov. 3rd, 5 to 6:30 at SoBo. Winter and Spring Show (3 rehearsals for 3 hours for each show TBD)
Where: Sobo Studio, Brattleboro Vermont
Why?: To have an artistic outlet and creative force to process the world in front of us through the medium of satire. Change the Channel Format: Change the Channel is the name of the show. Channel the change is our collective goal! The structure will weave in the improv sections with the written sketch comedy. Every “TV show” that we create will be a written sketch that will focus on cultural observation of our human race – whether news, pop culture, art, music, etc… The commercials will be mostly improv and guided by suggestions from the audience (as well as some repeat branded commercials that are pre-written). There will also be opportunities to showcase the talents of our cast whether it be singing, dancing, circus acts, stand-up comedy, or more. Individual capacities of our troupe will have plenty of space and time to be highlighted!! The show will run one hour with no intermissions.
Compensation: As of right now this would be a labor of love and time. If the shows are very financially successful we could start the discussion around compensation! But in terms of economics we’d have to have a few successful shows before money could be guaranteed.
