STAGE IMPS
Performers on stage

We hold open auditions once a year for stage performers. Absolutely ANYONE can audition - anyone!  Student or non-student, whatever age, whatever experience.

WHAT ARE THE AUDITIONS LIKE?

We hold group auditions in which we play a few fun games with all of you and encourage you to feel as relaxed and as comfortable as possible. We are proud of how unintimidating our auditions are. 

We look for performers who support others on stage, who are committed to what happens on stage, and who want to have fun.  It is surprising how much further qualities like this will go in audition, as opposed to wittiness or an ability for gags. We think good improv comes from a good team, and we look for team members in our auditions.

When?

Auditions will take place on the Wednesday & Thursday of 1st week at Wadham College. There will be two time slots on each night. Audition sessions will start at 18:15 and 20:15 on each evening. You only need to turn up on one night, and at whichever time slot is most convenient for you. Join on the Facebook event here. 

 
 

OFF-STAGE IMPS
Musicians, Tech and Production 

Just as the comedy is improvised, so too is the tech and piano.  We welcome anyone to audition who feels confident they can improvise music and tech for live performances.

WHAT ARE THE AUDITIONS LIKE?  

For musicians, the audition involves improvised piano playing while some stage Imps perform.  The stage Imps' work is to provide the action, your music can be expected to underscore, support and enhance the scene.  

For tech Imps, the audition is an informal meeting to discuss your previous experience (if any– experience is not expected!)

We’re one of the best-run theatre companies in Oxford, and that takes a lot of help. Front-of-house and production positions can be available year-round. If you’re looking for front-of-house opportunities email us.

Tech, music, and production Imps are vital to the company and enjoy all the perks of being a stage Imp.
