Audition: Romantic comedy Improv Actually seeks new cast members
WIT’s improvised romantic comedy seeks new cast members. Based on the hit holiday romcom Love Actually, this show has a heavy focus on relationships, falling in and out of love, and everything that happens in between.

- Completion of the WIT Curriculum or relevant experience. Additional performance experience strongly desired.
- Auditioners must be available for weekly Saturday rehearsals, November through February. from 12:00 – 2:30 PM at CentroNia (1420 Columbia Rd. NW). Auditioners must also be able to commit to several weekend shows in January and February, with the possibility of performances as soon as December.
- Auditioners should feel comfortable with playing vulnerable, grounded characters, dealing with complex relationship dynamics, performing non-comedic scenes, and handling a nuanced narrative structure.
