Auditions for NXT Cast

March 2, 2018 - 4:30pm - 7:00pm

Resume/Headshot Submission due February 27, 2018


Actors should have experience performing both written and improvised material. Additionally, sketch writing backgrounds and musical abilities are also strongly encouraged. Candidates will have their resumes reviewed and only offered an audition based on their resumes.



These auditions are for consideration for Improv Asylum’s resident NXT cast. This cast generally performs on Tuesdays and Sundays throughout the year with the intent to develop talent for our Main Stage cast, corporate shows, college shows and class instructors. Actors will work with the Artistic Director to be put into productions that will rehearse in late March/early April for a show to open in April and run throughout the summer. Our NXT actors are paid for their shows.



Why audition for Improv Asylum? We’re a nationally-recognized ensemble that’s performed on HBO, ABC, and had tens of thousands of live shows over the past nineteen years. We have shows 52 weeks a year and have repeatedly been voted Boston’s Best Comedy.

Call-backs will be on Saturday, March 3rd from 11:00am – 2:00pm. Please plan to be there for the entire call-back.
