KITTERY: Stranger Than Fiction Improv & Comedy - 2/21 (7-9PM) @ Kittery Community Center, 120 Rogers Rd. Try out at our annual improv auditions for actors 18+! No experience necessary!

There is no pressure to "be funny" - we only ask that you attend auditions ready to play and imagine. Improv is a collective experience that thrives on the contributions made by everyone onstage. We will be looking for people who are excellent listeners, and who can support their fellow scene partners. Please wear comfortable clothing and footwear, you will be moving around! We politely ask that ladies do not wear skirts unless you can wear shorts underneath. Bring water to stay hydrated. If you have a head shot and resume, please bring them to auditions. If you do not, we have paperwork to fill out day of and will snap a quick photo before we begin.

For you theatre types it's a song-cycle show ala - Songs for a New World or World Goes 'Round, but more in the spirit of what Amanda Palmer coined as, 'Brechtian punk cabaret'. Each of Billy's songs are brought to life with comedy, tragedy, circus, burlesque, melodrama, life, death, and love!
Seeking: Two strong rock singers, male, female, or whatever (20s-50s). Ability to dance and/or play musical instruments is a big plus. Strong dancers (contemporary and tap).
