Improv Playhouse holds House Team auditions

Improv Playhouse Theater has announced its Summer Quarter auditions for its House Team at 7 p.m. Tuesdays, June 28 and July 5.

Improv Playhouse is in search of talented performers who embody its values and touchstones and are 18 years or older. The IP House Teams perform Saturday nights at the IP Theater main stage, 735 N. Milwaukee, Libertyville.

Improv Playhouse graduates, qualified applicants from Chicago area conservatories and actors with improv backgrounds are encouraged to audition. Applicants will be expected to perform short form and scene play, and engage in characters, spontaneous monologues and impressions.

IP is looking for performers who are team players and can enrapture audiences, integrate appropriate humor, be truthful in the moment and be ambassadors for the IP Ethos. A coach will be provided to help with warm-ups. A completed application and resume will be requested.

These are non-equity, semiprofessional community improv teams, the talent from which is also resourced for corporate events, murder mysteries and private parties. SNL's Vanessa Bayer was a former talent with IP.
