Auditions 2015

You’ve seen us in TSOP, Tiger’s Roar, and Tiger Night, and this weekend at our Frosh Week Shows you can get a better idea of what we do.  But it’s that time of year again– Quipfire! can’t wait to expand the family, and we’re inviting all members of the Class of 2019 to audition for us next week!  Auditions are a low-stress opportunity to play fun games with a few other freshmen and require NO previous improv experience; plenty of Quipfire! members were new to improv when they joined.  There’s nothing to prepare or bring and it’s just 15 minutes out of your busy day.  Sign up for a slot at this link and encourage your friends to sign up too!
