THIS IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY – Whole World Improv Theatre’s Improvisation Studies Program, directed by Eric Goins, Open To Houghton Talent Actors

Whole World Improv Theatre’s Improvisation Studies Program, directed by Eric Goins, Open To Houghton Talent Actors

Whole World Improv Theatre is hosting an open audition on Wednesday, January 25, 2012 for its Improvisation Studies Program, directed and managed by Eric Goins, Assistant Artistic Director for Whole World Theatre and Houghton Talent actor. They are extending the first audition spots to actors currently represented by Houghton Talent.

Created to provide working and student actors a professional environment in which to learn improv, the program consists of an ongoing educational training program (you can remain in the program as long as you wish) focused on multiple platforms applicable to working actors. Rehearsals are on Wednesdays from 5-7PM. In addition to weekly rehearsals, members of the ISP cast will have an opportunity to perform a monthly 2-hour improv performance for a live audience on the Whole World Improv Theatre Main Stage to showcase their talent and test their skills in a live show environment. The show provides actors an opportunity to share their talents with friends, family, and, more importantly, industry decision makers.

If you are cast for the program, you will be asked to pay a one-time $50.00 administration fee. After that, no other fees or costs apply. In lieu of payment for classes, program participants are asked to help three times a month during one of Whole World’s live performances or in other ways agreeable to the program participants and Whole World. Cast members will be trained in production skills and show elements necessary for a successful show (lights, sound, camera, audience suggestions, etc.). This time is intended to give a “behind the scenes” look at the driving force behind our dynamic show, to provide an opportunity to be a part of an ensemble production, and become familiar with standard industry skills.

If you are interested, please send an email to eric@wholeworldtheatre.com by Friday, January 20, 2012 requesting an audition on Wednesday, January 25, 2012. A reply email will be sent to you with audition times by Monday, January 23, 2012.

If you have any questions about the program or audition, please contact Eric Goins at eric@wholeworldtheatre.com or 404.822.4078.
