The Titanic Players (NU)
Welcome to The Titanic Players Audition Sign Up!
Established in 1994, The Titanic Players are one of the most successful and longest running college improv organizations in the country. We are the only organization to win multiple college improv tournaments, to open for MadTV, to perform live improv on WNUR radio, and to perform as a regular team on the iO schedule. Our performers have continued successful television and film careers on The Office, Community, Arrested Development, SNL, Key and Peele, Parks and Recreation, the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and the Ellen Degeneres show, to name just a few! We perform all types of improv but specialize in long form, where we improvise entire 25-minute comedic pieces from a single audience suggestion.
To audition, you only need to sign up for ONE slot on Saturday, October 9th (if you sign up for more than one, we unfortunately have to delete them all. We don't allow "saving" slots)
Callbacks will take place in Locy 103 on Monday, October 11th with two slots from 6pm - 8pm and 8pm - 10pm.
No experience is necessary, we are a training institution first and foremost. We are just looking for up to 10 fun people who are willing to learn!
Some additional things to keep in mind:
- Read about us at www.thetitanicplayers.com
- Dress comfortably as you may be moving a lot
- This sign up is for current students at Northwestern University (Evanston campus) ONLY.
The time commitment can be 1-2 times a week determined by the group for up to 2.5 hours. Members of this team stay together until everyone graduates.
This year's new group will be coached by Sasha Rechler and Kaela Rosenbaum. Our oldest teams are coached by Titanic alum Mike Abdelsayed. Mike is the Artistic Director for The Comedy Clubhouse and One Group Mind, a former iO coach and teacher, and was Keegan Michael-Key's understudy at Second City.
