SEEKING improvisers

The Rapids is a new improvised soap opera comedy that can only be found at Mirrorbox Theatre. In each monthly “episode,” presented live on the Mirrorbox stage, greedy industrialists, horny lovers, corrupt politicians, and other big personalities keep getting into hilarious trouble based on audience suggestions. Watch every month as improvisers keep the drama alive in a funhouse version of our city.

Seeking (5) non-union performers for a three-show commitment, plus rehearsals. Previous improv experience (particularly long-form) is preferred, though not required.

All performers will receive one complimentary ticket to each performance (3 total).

All performers will receive a $75 honorarium after the three-show commitment.

Auditions will be held in a group setting due to the ensemble nature of the project. Please arrive to auditions on time, and expect to be present for the entirety of the audition, or until released.

Seeking ensemble members with skill including but not limited to:
