Frogmen of the Gowanus: Seeking 55 Gifted Individuals

Improv leading to sketch comedy: That is the plan at the Brooklyn Lyceum. Want to try out?

Meet with the Frogmen; send them your headshot, resume/CV and writing samples.

The basics:
In commemoration of 1955, the year the Dodgers won the World Series, the historic Brooklyn Lyceum is putting out a comedy call to arms seeking 55 gifted individuals.

The landmark institution is seeking a confederation, of writers, actors and improvisers who will provide the basis for a weekly sketch/variety show in the grand tradition of the original Not-Ready-for-Primetime Players (only better, of course). Of the 55 talented folks chosen to bring this all to life, 32 will be part of the primary show. 8 as tech, 8 as writers, 8 as featured actors and 8 highlighted performers.

The remaining 23 will host a weekly improv show (along with teams and troupes invited from across the country) which will serve as a showcase and testing ground for material and performers to rotate into the primary performance.

Next organizational meetings are July 11th, 18th & 25th from 6PM to 7PM.
Live from New York, or more appropriately, Brooklyn... it could be YOU!
