I do have a VO audish to post about and I'll get to it shortly.

But first, for all of my sporty improv friends- check out this c-list ad for a sports show:

The Jim Rome Show and Jim Rome Is Burning are looking for a writer(s).

Lots of improvisor are also writers, so if that's you & you're into sports, go for it!

The Funnest Classes Ever

Lucky you- Second City has another round of Music Improv classes starting up. I am currently in the final level and we're preparing for our run of shows in the Skybox. I truly believe that these are the best classes ever. And they are competing against my voiceover class so you know it must be good. Of course, if you don't like musicals or singing then none of this applies to you. But if you do love music, singing, and dancing, then call now!

From the CIN Post...
The Second City Training Center's
Musical Improv Program
Learn how to create musical songs and scenes through improvisation in this five-term program. Class meets once a week for three hours. There are performances at the end of each of the five levels including a 5-performance graduation showcase.

Auditions will be held Saturday, April 25th in the afternoon.
To sign up, stop by or call the Training Center at 312-664-3959.

Reasons You Did Not Get Cast

I found this on Lauren's blog and it explains so many things:

ps- I did a whois search and it's registered to some guy in NYC. So I guess it's not a Chicago thing but it could be.
