It was great to see everyone and to find out what everyone thinks about where we should go. We ended up talking about everything in the post below (with minimal ribbing from Pete), and landed on the same page.
I had worked myself up to be nervous about potential conflicts—and then finally relaxed when I realized I'd be happy with whatever was decided. I think I was putting too much pressure on this one group to meet all my improv needs; when I let that go, everything was fine.
- We talked about how to make a show more newsworthy—and where we landed should be really fun. (Hint: There will be no nudity.)
- We're looking at joining forces with another troupe...'cause that's the trend, and it's a good one.
- More shows! More shows!
Currently, we're scheduled to play WCH June 20 and August 22, plus at the KC Improv Festival. And we're looking to add more in-between dates.
As far as meeting other improv needs, there's lots coming up: Opportunities to work out with others put together by Jared and John, KC Improv Festival Fundraisers (kickball in May and workshops in June) and playing Thunderdome with Burnin' Sternums.
Plus, I just completed day one of the three-day Exit 16 audition cycle—free workshop, auditions and callbacks. Their last show is in two weeks...freaky.
