Summer 2012 | New Cast Announcement

The Future


IB Auditions saw more people and a much higher caliber of talent than it has in years. As a national comedy hub we may be turning a corner, TOWARDS THE FUTURE! Harold, Family Show, Face Off and TourCo callbacks were exceptionally impressive; almost every scene could have gone up in front of an audience, and would have made any director proud.

Since our directors only had a limited number of spots to fill, deliberations were not easy, but we are proud to announce the New Cast additions for SUMMER and FALL 2012!

Everyone who came out this weekend knows what an amazing two days it was and how much raw talent we have here in our community. Honestly, we ran auditions, but it felt more like two straight days of comedy shows. Incredible. Remember that the opportunities here do not stop. If you have ideas, please let us know. If you have questions, just ask.

The ImprovBoston STUDIO 40 program will be kicking off a new and aggressive push for the Summer, starting with a
STUDIO 40 Marathon on Monday June 25th (so people can check out existing Studio Teams before early July auditions) and a Talent Development Summit on Sunday July 15th to discuss performer growth and artistic opportunities at the Theater.

CELEBRATE THESE NEW CAST MEMBERS AT OUR PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT TONIGHT! 630PM at ImprovBoston. After the announcement people can stay for Comedy Lab or you can head over to The Field and buy these new ImprovBoston comedians a drink.

Thank you!

Will Luera, Zach Ward and the IB Family
