Production Description

Seeking new Latino members for an improvisational theater and sketch comedy ensemble (think "Saturday Night Live" or "In Living Color") offering customized instruction and industry exposure. Producer states: "After auditioning, selected performers will be accepted in the company's comedy conservatory and receive six months of improvisation and sketch classes at a significantly reduced rate, one-on-one career coaching, and regular performance opportunities. Six-to-twelve conservatory members are chosen for the team; all classes are free for select team members. Team members perform every week on a NYC stage, craft a new sketch comedy show and improv set every month, and build their resumes while working with comedy directors and instructors. Paid alumni team members are featured in online videos, work as instructors, work at private and corporate gigs, and may find representation. A current conservatory member states: 'Meeting the founder of The Groundlings was amazing. I had no idea that I would find such great friends, professional connections, and opportunities through this group.'"
