I loved my time on the NXT cast at Improv Asylum and would be pleased as punch to sit and talk with anyone who is on the fence about auditioning.

Taken from the Improv Asylum Website:

Improv Asylum is holding general auditions for men and women on Monday, March 29 from 4-7pm in Boston, MA. Looking for men and women with strong improvisational background and/or professional theatrical experience.

Casey!
Unfortunately these auditions were March 2010, not coming up this month. If you are interested in receiving notices about auditions at IA in the future you should contact Stacey@improvasylum.com.
If you just want to chat about the structure and what to expect or prepare hypothetically feel free to email me at MischWhitaker@gmail.com and we can go from there!
