Maestro Casting

IF you are interested in playing in the weekly Maestro or Maestro RAW show. See the feed below and find the latest casting post and google form. The Form is always here. You can see if you are cast below as well.

A note from the current director:

Hey guys! My phone number is 512-810-9753, and my email is majcher@gmail.com – holler if you have any Maestro-related needs.

Maestro is every Saturday at 10pm. Call time is 9:20pm.
Maestro RAW is on Saturdays on months that don’t have student mainstage shows at 6pm. (Call time 5:20pm.)

If you’re running tech, here’s a great tutorial! https://vimeo.com/178074136

Current Policies:

Call-time for Maestro is 9:20. I will try to cast a limited amount of people from the current mainstage. I’ll also make sure there is always one director who can show up promptly and run warm-ups.

If you tech, you get to play the following week. However, it is up to you to make sure you are available to play the following week.

If you drop out of Maestro after it has been cast, there is a one month ban.

Warm-Ups will be organized and led by a director or a pre-assigned member of the Maestro cast. Again, warm-ups begin at 9:30pm.

Staying for notes is required. Maestro will get out between 11:45-11:50. Notes will not last longer than 10 minutes.

If you ever miss a signup post, you can always submit athttp://bit.ly/signupformaestro or http://bit.ly/signupformaestroRAW

Have a good time, party people!

What a rush it was performing in Maestro for the first time! Thank you so much for having me in your show. It was a privilege to get to play with such a funny and talented group of people🙂 (seriously y'all are amazing)and what an awesome show it was seriously one of my favorite moments that I've had as an improviser. I can't wait to perform in yalls beautiful theater again. More positive adjectives! I'm not even normally this affectionate but i was seriously amped up the whole way home got home at 2 and then needed to eat half a bag of chips ahoy and watch Peaky Blinders to calm down. Y'all are wonderful let's all make out ... See MoreSee Less

Hi Maestro Friends! This week's free Wednesday ham is Maestro themed, so come on out and play in a super supportive environment. Michelle Cook and I will be facilitating it. It's happening tomorrow, Wednesday the 9th, from 7-9pm at Hideout Studios (2505 E 6th Street). 🎉

If you could come without hairsprays, colognes, or perfumes, we would greatly appreciate that (fragrance sensitivity!). 💜

Weekly Improv Jam (Maestro-themed)

August 9, 2017, 7:00pm - August 9, 2017, 9:00pm

It's our weekly Improv Jam at the Hideout's east side Studios space - 2505 E 6th St, Unit C (just east of Pedernales). PARK ON THE STREET, NOT AT THE BAR LOT ON THE CORNER. This is an open improv comedy Jam, no experience necessary, no Hideout affiliation necessary. It runs 7-9pm with 45 minutes of warm-up games (bippity bippity bop, bad rap, etc.) and favorite exercises (hat game, what comes next?, etc.) and then 75 minutes of mock show (games and scenes in front of the group). This is just for improvisers; no tickets, no audience. This isn't a class or workshop, just a chance to get some fun play time - so no feedback or criticism. The Jam will be facilitated by upper level Hideout students and improvisers. They'll show up with some ideas for what to do, and ask the group of jammers what they would be excited to do (so come with your own ideas about what you'd like to try out). This one is a Maestro Jam, so look forward to getting your reps in playing Maestro-style games, and having a blast! Make the Wednesday Jam a habit in 2017!

Maestro with a musician used to be an occasional special event and has long since become the norm. What are the chances of having a Maestro with two veteran techs doing sound/scoring and lights sometime (but not in August because I'm in another show)? ... See MoreSee Less
