ADULT LEAGUE TRYOUTS
DECEMBER 14th, 6:30pm & 8:00 pm
DECEMBER 22nd, 6:30pm & 8:00 pm

We're looking for excellent team players, natural improv comedians, and those with an uncanny sense of comedic timing to join one of our ComedySportz Richmond adult leagues. Improv or theatre experience helpful, but not required. Come prepared to move, play and laugh. No prepared monologues or songs necessary.

About the tryouts:

WHEN & WHERE: Tryouts will take place at the CSz Richmond Training Center, 8904 W. Broad Street, Richmond, VA 23294 on December 14th and December 22, 2021. There will be two time slots (6:30pm and 8:00pm) per night. Pre-registration is required for attendance.

WHO CAN TRY OUT? Tryouts are open to anyone 18 and older (not currently in high school). Improv comedy experience, education, or background is helpful, but not required.  The CSz Richmond Theater is an inclusive place, and we value players of all ability, age, ethnicity, gender and gender expression, race, religion, or sexual orientation. CSz is FOR EVERYONE.

HOW DO I PREPARE?  Start by filling out the form below so we can schedule a time slot for you.  Come in comfy clothes that you’re able to move in.  Oh - and if you've never seen a ComedySportz match before, we highly recommend taking one in before tryouts if you can.  You can get tickets HERE!

THE TRYOUTS: Plan to arrive at CSz around fifteen minutes before your scheduled time. Our tryouts are a big group event, where you'll warm up and play improv games with others whom you've just met. We will play for about an hour and a half, trying a variety of games with a variety of other people. Our hope is that this will be the most fun you've ever had in any audition situation! There may be a need for callbacks, which will be discussed at the tryouts.

WHAT ABOUT MAJOR LEAGUE TRYOUTS? We only offer opportunities for our ComedySportz Major League troupe directly from the Minor League. In addition, both Minor League and Rec League members have opportunities to participate in CSz-branded After Hours shows. So whether you're just looking to have fun doing improv with a great group of people, or you have your eyes set on the Majors and beyond, this is the way to go.
