We’re super pleased to announce auditions for “So You Think You Can?: A Reality Show Competition Comedy” (current working title)” running Saturdays 7pm March 25th – April 29th In the downstairs theater.
This first show of our BIPOC-led show initiative is a concept created and directed by Deepika Pangarkar.
Here’s a brief description of the show:
In the world of a reality show (think Chopped) 3 contestants are competing to win! The majority of the show, however, will tell the stories of the contestants through flashbacks, with the finale of the competition coming at the end after we’re invested in all the characters, declaring a final winner.
The format of the show is similar to a time-lapse Harold with multiple beats. If you were at the Free Fringe on Friday you got a taste of this show!
Auditions will be Sunday, February the 12th from 2 to 5pm.
Here’s the form link:
Rehearsals will be on Wednesdays starting Feb. 15th (with one Saturday rehearsal on the 25th)
If you haven’t met Deepika before, here’s a little bit about her: This is Deepika Pangarkar’s debut as a director. She discovered improv 3 years ago at HUGE Theatre in Minneapolis and has been hooked since then. She has a love for exploring characters and motivations in scenes and is excited to bring her twist to the Austin improv scene.
