United – Audition

Applications for this audition have closed.

United is an improvisation show played with the energy of a sports match and the spirit of a sports team. No polite applause here; the United squad are going to ignite the crowd. We’ll cheer for scenes like they’re goals, roar for the actors like they’re athletes, and turn the theatre into a stadium.

For this Nursery Originals show for the Autumn season, grab a jersey and join director Juwel Haque and the most supportive and enthusiastic cast you’ll ever perform with. Love your scene partners’ offers, watch them turn into glorious scenes and an electrifying show. Come and play the United way. 

The audition 

The audition will be workshop-style, with around a dozen people. We’ll begin with a couple of ice-breakers and warm-ups. Then we’ll demonstrate some of the player behaviours that help give the show its vibe, and fold these in to some long-form sets from the auditionees.

We’re looking for a generous attitude from you, to see how well you support your fellow players, both in-scene and in transition, using the behaviours. As well as supporting your fellow players’ preferred play styles, we’re also looking for you to show off your own unique skillset (be it slow, physical, organic, manic; whatever you love!) as we’re building a diversely skilled team that has each other’s back.

We’re really keen to see you do and show your best, and we want you to find out whether you’d love the show and find it a great fit for your talents too.
