The Show is looking for anyone in Sonoma County, California (or close surrounding
areas) to help us put on our stage and screen performances! We are in need
of a tech crew, directors, producers, venues, as well as performers and writers,
and we are always accepting applications. If you do not live in the Sonoma
County area but would still like to take part in the madness, feel free to
send us your sketch ideas, or even completed sketches, as it is possible for
at least writers to get involved via the Internet. NOTE: Individuals may apply
for more than one position! In fact, good "All-around" people will be looked
upon with favor. (That's what we are, sort of sketch comedy production Renaissance-men
and women.) We are all in our college years, and prefer applicants between
the ages of 18 and 35, but we are open to what anyone can offer.
FOR PERFORMERS/ACTORS- We'll first talk about what your "specialties" are
(voices, certain types of characters, etc.) and what you feel comfortable
showing us right then and there. (Not your undies.) Audition will consist
of performing one short monologue (original work is GREAT, but we will provide
some of ours just in case) either solo or with another performer, just to
warm you up. Then the floor is yours. We encourage improvisation, and we'll
help by shooting ideas (and possibly bottle rockets) at you and watching what
you can do with our suggestions. WE WANT EXTREME! We really want to see you
go at it with zest. Be wacky and weird and edgy and bitter or whatever you
do best. Think "over the top," but in control. And, if that's not you, we're
always looking for "straight" characters, too. If you do a really cool "normal"
person, we want to see that as well. So, basically, the idea is to perform
with confidence. We are not here to judge you, we're here to see if your talent
matches our needs. Improv and originality is emphasized, and we might even
give you a cookie if you're good.
Writers and crew are needed just as badly as performers. All you need to do
is fill out an application, and maybe talk to us about your own experience and
talents. Writers, we would love to read your comedy-related pieces, anything
that will prove your possible sketch writing talents. Crew, we are seeking costumers,
set and prop people, camera and video experts, lighting, art direction, whatever
help you can offer relating to TV/theatrical production. PRODUCERS ARE ALSO
MORE THAN WELCOME. Remember, we're seeking VOLUNTEERS. You will not be paid
in money, but rather in the personal satisfaction in performing and creating
good, original, pee-your-pants funny sketch comedy. We have high hopes, and
with the right team, it's very possible we might make it big. Really big.
Show, what can I do to help?
As of late,
The Show is seeking a volunteer camera, lighting and/or audio crew and a
multi-talented prop/costume person.
for passionate, dedicated and unique individuals who would like to spend
some time improving The Show for television production.
If you are
experienced with digital video equipment or are a wonderful prop/costume-finder,
then we welcome you with open arms into the exciting and dangerous glamour
that is sketch comedy!
