iO Harold Team Audish - Call Friday 1/16

On Saturday, February 21st iO is having Harold Team audishes with call in sign ups tomorrow.

Info on the official site is here, info on CIN is here.

"Please bring a headshot and resume. If you do not have a headshot, please bring a comparable photograph. No need to let your picture be funnier than your audition. Please dress as you would for a show."

Do you have your materials ready to go? If you don't have a resume and you get a slot you have a whole month to get it together.

Last time they audishes was August 07 according to my blog ;), so get on it! As I mentioned in that last post about iO audishes:

A special inside note on the harold audish- if it is the same as it has been in the past, your group will do a harold piece that makes it to the second game if you are lucky. I have a special place in my heart for the harold audish as that is how my first team came together. Six of us has gotten the same time, practiced harolds, and approached the audition as a matinee show. We showed up to find 2 random people added to our time slot. After quick introductions, we had a great audish. There are things from that 'matinee' that I can clearly recall as best moments ever. Eventually we were put on the schedule and lasted 1.5 years. The first 6 were people who had not been put on a team right out of classes, and the other 2 had been cut from the schedule before.

In my other life as a marketing coordinator, we created a plan for 2009 using a year long calendar. The marketing department made a list of everything we are supposed to do and planned out a schedule. As proposal and other day-to-day requests come in, we get pretty busy. So this keeps us on track and reminds us of the big picture things we are supposed to do.

I have always had lots of 'plans' and 'ideas,' but I've never sat down and put it on a calendar like that. As you can tell, I think this is a great idea and I am going to do this for myself. Why? Well, if we're all trying be professional entertainers (actors, improvers, writers, comedians, whatevs) then you are your own show business. So why not run it like a business?
As you can see from the pic, you can download a calendar from the webs. If you have Word, check out the templates and do a search for calendars. You can type right into the boxes and print out a supercute 2009!
