Torch Auditions

You will have to sign up to attend the auditions – Application is below.

Deadline to apply is Saturday, September 7th.

What we are auditioning for:

– At least one new Torch cultivated team (made up of 8 members) that will rehearse once a week with a Torch-provided coach and will perform two times per month (Trifecta and/or Revolver slots). We will make a 6 month commitment to this team and evaluate whether the team will continue, whether we will make changes to the team’s roster, or whether we will decide to let the team make the choice to continue on their own, independent of The Torch.

We’re looking for performers who:

– are lots of fun to play with and can perform great scenework
– can be supportive teammates, on stage & off
– work well with others and contribute to the overall chemistry & composition of a team
– Are available to make a commitment to a rigorous rehearsal & performance schedule

Audition schedule:

– First round: 2:30pm to 5:30pm on Saturday, September 14th. Auditions will consist of a warmup, two-person scenes, and some group games.

– Callbacks: 2:30pm to 5:30pm on Saturday, September 21st. Callbacks will consist of groupings of 8 performing a Harold.

We’re excited to have our first ever auditions and we hope you will be too. Depending on how things go, we might do them again at some point or we may never do them again. These auditions will be more of an experiment than a perfect process to put together perfect teams.

We want as many folks as possible to audition, whether you’re close to Level 3 (at The Torch Theatre) or you’ve been performing for 10 years. Please be aware that your improv experience will be a large factor in our decisions. These groups are not meant to replace an education in longform.

Apply below and your audition will be scheduled for a specific time on Sept. 14th. You will be contacted directly.

We are only auditioning a maximum number of improvisors. If there is a lot of interest you will be invited to audition based on your level of experience and ability.
