Thank you for signing up for auditions! Please read the following information. This is the second round of auditions. If you auditioned last week (1/24), please do not re-audition. 

When to arrive: 10 minutues prior to your audition time so you have time to fill out an standard information form. 

What to bring: Energy, a positive attitude, and a detailed conflicts list. IMPORTANT: Conflicts disclosed prior to rehearsal are the only conflicts that will be considered when casting. Conflicts encountered later on in rehearsal process will not be honored.

What to wear: Comfortable clothes and shoes you can move in and don’t mind getting on the floor in.

What to expect: This is a group audition. WOOT! Expect to be video recorded in a group, and expect to demonstrate improvisation skills based upon specific games (see below). 

What to prepare: Use this link to the Canadian Improv Games Quick Demos video (here’s the link in case the embedded link doesn’t work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIHnGvbiWU8). Any of these may be played during the audition. The time marker after each title below indicates where in the video you’ll fine the exercise. If you wish to see the rules written out, enter into your favorite search engine ‘Canadian Improv Games’ followed by the name of the game, e.g. Canadian Improv Games Johnson File.
