Join the Lady Sketch Lab!
Hold on to your NuvaRings. The Lady Sketch Show is backand this year, we want YOU to help us make it bigger and better than ever!
Heres how itll work:
We'll be meeting on Saturdays 12-3 at the new Magnet Training Center (22 West 32nd Street, 10th floor) for six weeks starting January 31st.
You'll bring in a mix of new and rewritten sketches each week (1 or 2). We'll give each other feedback for rewrites. The best sketches will be put into the final shows (March 16th, 23rd and 30th at 7pm).
For the first meeting all we ask is that you bring in is:
1. An example of a sketch that you saw on TV or staged and why you love it.
2. An example of something that happened in your day/week/month/life that you thought was really funny. Anything.
THAT'S IT! You don't even have to write anything just yet. Give it a try.
YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED:
But I've never written sketch or taken a sketch class.
That's totally fine. We still want you.
But I really can't write. Can I just perform?
You can get involved as a performer only. Come to the meeting anyway. You might find yourself accidentally writing something amazing.
But I can't perform/memorize lines.
You can just write then.
I write better with a partner. I can't do this on my own.
You and your (female) partner can present co-written material at meetings. Alternatively, if you realize you really like working with someone at the meetings, you can go off and write together.
I can't make all the meetings.
Come when you can. What ends up in the show will be the best material, meaning it will probably have been presented to the group and rewritten a number of times, but feel free to show up when you can.
Is this going to be a comedy show only about periods and tampons?
No, it will be about whatever you decide to write.
But I'm still scared.
Follow your fear. Remember how hard improv used to seem before you actually tried it?
See you there,
