Are you interested in being a part of NYU's sketch comedy group? HammerkatzNYU is looking to bring on a new group of writer/performers this year, and we are holding auditions on Friday September 11th and Saturday September 12th. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY. It'll be fun!
The audition process has two parts:
1. A performance audition. This is very laid back and you don't need to prepare anything. You will just be cold-reading a couple sketches.
FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 11TH @ 6pm
SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 12TH at 6:30pm. (you only need to come to one night)
WHERE: Both audition dates will take place on the 9th floor of Kimmel.
(note: the end time of auditions depends on how many people show up, but be prepared for it to take a few hours.)
2. A writing submission. Your writing sample can include a sketch you have written, a page of ideas for sketch premises, or some kind of mixture of both.
HOW TO SUBMIT A WRITING SAMPLE: You can either e-mail your writing sample to email@example.com, or you can bring a hard copy with you to the audition. Try to e-mail it to us before 6:30pm on Saturday the 12th.
We realize that some people are more interested in performing than writing and some people are more interested in writing than performing. We would still like everyone to complete both parts of the audition.
Again, no experience is necessary. It's gonna be a lot of fun and a great way to meet other people interested in comedy at NYU. Please don't hesitate to e-mail us with any questions you might have before auditions.
And for non-audition-related news: our next all-new, all-free sketch show will be on Saturday September 26th on the 8th floor of Kimmel.
Thanks a lot, and we look forward to meeting a lot of you at auditions!
