Be a part of the Lady Sketch Lab!
The Lady Sketch Lab is backand this year, we want YOU to help us make it bigger and better than ever! All WOMEN are encouraged to attend!
Heres how itll work:
Well be meeting on Saturdays 12-3 at the Magnet Training Center (22 West 32nd Street, 10th floor) for six weeks starting January 30th.
Youll bring in a mix of new and rewritten sketches each week (1 or 2). Well give each other feedback for rewrites. The best sketches will be put into the final shows (March 14th, 21st and 28th at 9pm).
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.
THATS IT! You dont even have to write anything just yet. Give it a try.
YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED:
But Ive never written sketch or taken a sketch class.
Thats totally fine. We still want you.
But I really cant 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 cant perform/memorize lines.
You can just write then.
I write better with a partner. I cant 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 cant 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.
How much does it cost?
Do I have to pre-register?
Nope. Just show up!
Is this going to be a comedy show only about periods and tampons?
No, it will be about whatever you decide to write.
But Im still scared.
Follow your fear. Remember how hard improv used to seem before you actually tried it?
See you there,
