Greetings, Magnet Theater Friends and Family!
This September will mark the end of the current Megawatt season and also the two-year mark of my tenure as Megawatt Director. With the changing of the season (and a baby on the way) I have decided to step down and hand the baton off to the incredible Hannah Chase!
Hannah will officially be taking over with the next round of auditions and start of the new season in mid-September. Dates for auditions will officially be announced on this blog at a later date.
I’m endlessly blown away by the talent, creativity, and camaraderie of the Megawatt performers and members of the community, and Wednesday nights are always a highlight of my week. It has been an honor and a privilege to get to watch and be a part of four hours of some of the best improv anywhere every Wednesday for the past two years.
Megawatt is the greatest, and it just keeps getting better. I plan on bringing my baby to watch when she is old enough.
We are now accepting applications for The Summer 2017 Circuit! Circuit Teams are made up of Magnet Theater students, graduates of our training program, and veteran performers. We believe that in order to get better at improv, you need to do it.
The deadline to apply is July 5, 2017, at noon. Teams will be announced July 8. Rehearsals start the weekend of July 15. Shows will begin Friday, July 21. Teams will perform Friday nights at 10:00 pm for 10 weeks (with one week off for Labor Day weekend).
To sign up for The Circuit, click this link to fill out the form:
This round, there will also be a Musical Circuit team! If you have completed Musical Level 3 and are not currently on a Musical Megawatt team, you can apply for Musical Circuit here:

Magnet is very excited to announce that the next season of Conservatory Circuit is now open for applications! What is Conservatory Circuit, you ask? Why, its just like the regular Circuit, except its open only to students who have been accepted into Magnets Conservatory program (Level 5 and above). Its an awesome way to work weekly with an ensemble and coach as well as get more reps under your belt. We highly recommend it!
Application deadline: Saturday, April 22nd at noon
Team announcements: Wednesday, April 26th
Shows: Fridays at 10pm; May 5th through June 9th at the Magnet Training Center Studio
