Auditions 2010!

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 10th and Saturday September 11th. 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 be cold-reading a couple sketches that we provide.




SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 11TH at 6pm. (you only need to come to one night)

WHERE: Both audition dates will take place on the 8th floor of Kimmel.

(note: the performance audition could take a few hours, so consider bringing something to entertain yourself while you wait)

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: Please e-mail your writing sample to hammerkatznyu@gmail.com before midnight on Friday, September 10th.

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 on campus. Auditions are open to students in any school 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 25th on the 8th floor of Kimmel.

Thanks a lot, and we look forward to meeting a lot of you at auditions!


p.s. Huge thanks to everyone who came out to our Welcome Week show.
