Neutrino & New England Family Improv Auditions

Sunday, June 18th, 12-3 p.m.

Tribe house team Neutrino, fresh off its successful first run, and member team New England Family, which completed a great first run last winter, are collectively holding auditions to add members to their groups. The Tribe's Member Team program empowers artists to bring their visions to life, casting their own troupes and choosing their directors with the support and guidance of The Tribe. Member troupes are self-sufficient, artist-driven teams. Our house teams, which included Neutrino and the Tribe Players, are administrated by the Tribe with goal of creating and supporting top quality, innovative shows. Our goal is to create an environment that fosters new cutting-edge shows, eagerly anticipated by artists and audiences alike.

Neutrino Video Projects Boston
Directed by Jason Haas
Rehearsals: Wednesdays 7-10 p.m.
Part of the nationwide Neutrino Network, this troupe pulls off the remarkable feat of creating 25-minute, improvised and "almost-live" movies right in front of the audience by taking video cameras and improvisors right out into the streets! Using a structure that borrows heavily from the Harold, improvisors create intimate and engaging stories with hilarious outcomes, incorporating whatever and whoever they encounter while shooting in the area around the theatre. Performers are expected to be committed and high-energy, bringing openness, focus and a desire to take risks to the table for every show. Each member will learn to operate all of our audiovisual equipment, be responsible for their own attendance, and take their commitment seriously. The current team's tremendous efforts over the last seven months have yielded shows that left audiences astounded, begging for more, and demanding to know how it's done. Are you ready to be a part of this innovative and challenging team?!

New England Family
Directed by Maria Simmons
Rehearsals: TBD
New England Family is a character-based long form improv show dealing with the relationships of a family who live in Quincy on Mass' South Shore. The characters are based around familiar Boston personalities and return each show. The show follows a set format including monologues and a series of scenes. Every performance begins with an inspiration from the audience which the cast will use as motivation for the show. This show targets truth in comedy as the cast strives to discover and present the real emotions behind a family's dysfunction.
