AUDITION NOTICE: UNCLE MIKE RUINS CHRISTMAS

Expires: September 24, 2023

About the Project

We’re seeking ACTORS, COMEDIANS, and IMPROVISORS to join the cast of Seattle’s most beloved & distasteful Holiday Show.

 

About the Show: Uncle Mike Ruins Christmas is lauded as one of Seattle’s longest-running & best improv experiences. Our wildly talented cast & crew sweetly performs recreations of our audience’s cherished holiday memories... until Uncle Mike defiles & corrupts them in the best-worst ways possible.

 

Performances:

Fri, Dec 15th
Sat, Dec 16th
Fri, Dec 22nd
Sat, Dec 23rd
**Each date may have 1 or 2 performances, depending ticket sales velocity

Rehearsals: 8-10 rehearsals will be held late October - mid-December based on cast availability. Rehearsals are a must.

 

Audition Details:

  • Sunday, September 24th @ 4pm
  • 900 E Pine St, Seattle, WA 98122
  • Sign-up: Please reserve your audition slot by completing this form.

Open to All Identities: We believe in the power of diverse voices and stories. All races, ethnicities, gender identities, and sexual orientations are welcome and encouraged to audition. Note: This production is actively working to improve representation and inclusivity. We appreciate your support as we strive to evolve and grow as a production.

 

Tone and Content: "Uncle Mike Ruins Christmas" is a comedy that pushes boundaries and revels in its humor. Improvisers should be prepared for provocative subjects and themes that might be triggering for some individuals. Actually, that’s a huge understatement - we’ll blow by the provocative subjects and right to the deeply profane ones BUT - while our show is designed to challenge “feel-good” holiday stories (Hallmark movies, church plays, community theater, etc) - we wholeheartedly embrace the holiday spirits as they are celebrated by our audience members and subvert expectations in an effort to spread holiday cheer.

 

What We're Looking For:

  • +2 years improvised performance experience or +5 years scripted stage performance experience and comfortable improvising on stage
  • 18 years old or older
  • Fearless, quick-witted performers comfortable with provocative and “blue” content
  • Collaborative attitude, open to notes
  • Willingness to explore dark subjects, characters, and stories
