GENERAL INFO

 

LIT conducts its annual open-call auditions for its house teams, performance classes, writers' rooms, special projects and other programs in July.

 

We're looking for more than just comedic talent in our players — we're looking for the LIT fit.  We're devoted to fostering a positive, supportive environment that is inclusive and develops the skills and resumes of its players.  We want performers who believe in this as much as we do. 

We are holding auditions for:  stand-ups, storytellers, poets, actors, playwrights, sketch writers & performers, screenwriters, satire writers and various improv teams (musical, long-form & short-form).  

Individual performers at any level and of all types are encouraged to audition.
