90 Neo-Futurist Plays by Greg Allen
If you love improv… you will love this show! Having opened in 1988 and still playing today as the longest running show in Chicago history, this “play” is an ensemble experiment in presenting “30 Plays in 60 Minutes.” Each two-minute play is performed in random order selected by the audience. This is just one way the audience participates! An onstage MC keeps everyone on time and keeps the show moving. The script contains a collection of 90 comic, political, personal, and abstract plays. We will select the 30 we want to do. This gives us the chance to create our own evening of 30 Neo-Futurist plays. All are welcome to join the company!
Audition workshop will be Feb. 20, 2019 from 4:30-6:00 in the PH.
Auditions will be Feb. 21-22 from 4:30-6:30 in the PH. All students should be prepared to tell an appropriate joke, play improv games, and read from the script.
Contact Ms. T if you have questions.
