Impro Melbourne is looking for individuals who have a passion for improvisation to join our Rookie Company.
Rookie Tryouts are open to Impro Melbourne students or improvisers invited by our Artistic Directors.
A Rookie is a member of our apprentice company. They are improvisers who train and perform with Impro Melbourne. Rookies are committed to developing their improvisational and performance skills; they share the same creative goals as Impro Melbourne, and have strong interpersonal and group skills.
Rookies receive performance opportunities on special Rookie projects plus performance with Impro Melbourne’s Ensemble through the main season. (Such as Theatresports™ and Maestro™)
Rookies also receive personal guidance and feedback on their work and discounted training.
To become a Rookie we require interested individuals to attend a Tryout session.
The Tryout is a fun, structured jam. You will be working with various members of Impro Melbourne in a relaxed environment so we can get to know each other. Successful Candidates need to be available to attend training on Monday nights and committed to attending weekly Impro Melbourne shows.
Successful individuals will receive a formal invitation by the Artistic Director.
Date: Monday 3rd December
Time: 7pm - 9pm
Venue: Rosina auditorium - Abbotsford Convent
Please note there are limited spaces available.
Registration deadline is Friday 23rd November
