Be a part of The Lady Sketch Lab 2017!
The Lady Sketch Lab is back! All WOMEN* are encouraged to attend.
*women, trans, cis and gender non-conforming/queer.
Heres how itll work:
Well be meeting on Saturdays 12-3pm at the Magnet Training Center (22 West 32nd Street, 10th floor) for six weeks starting January 28th. We will be breaking up into 3 different groups. Youll bring in a mix of new and rewritten sketches each week (1 or 2). Well give each other feedback for rewrites. A selection of the generated sketches will be put into 3 different sketch shows each 30 minutes each. Each show will go up twice. The shows will be on March 13th, 20th, & 27th at 9 pm.
For the first meeting all we ask is that you bring in:
1. An example of a sketch that you saw on TV or stage 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.
3. That supportive spirit.
THATS IT! You dont even have to write anything just yet. Give it a try.
YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED:
But Ive never written a 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 writing 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.
If you want to be in the final show or have your sketch considered, you must attend at least 4 of the 6 sessions.
How much does it cost?
Do I have to pre-register?
Nope. Just show up!
But Im still uncertain.
Follow your fear. Remember how hard improv used to seem before you actually tried it?
See you there,
Amanda Xeller & Megan Gray
