Monkey Business Improv Auditions

Monkey Business Institute is holding auditions for new troupe members.

We understand life can be crazy busy. If you cannot make any of these auditions, please let us know and we’ll do our best to make arrangements that will work for you.

Based on current Covid conditions proof of vaccination will be required and we will be masking during the auditions. This could change depending on pandemic trends and you will be notified of any changes.

For those who get through the final audition, the process to become a troupe member is as follows: You will be enrolled in a free, 12-week accelerated improv class called Performance Track Class (PTC). Our expectations are that you will make at least 10 of those classes and be available to perform in at least 2 public class shows during that time period. If you have not taken a Level One improv class with us before, you’ll also be asked to take a free Level One class either this summer or this fall. Those who successfully graduate PTC will become probationary troupe members for 6 months. You’ll be expected to be available to play at least 3 shows/month during this period. If you successfully complete your probationary period, you’ll become a full MBI troupe member! You’re expected to be available for at least 3 shows/month for your first year of play. Finally, we ask you make a commitment to play at least 3 years with us.
