The Magnet is super-psyched to announce that the latest season of Conservatory Circuit is now open for applications! What is Conservatory Circuit, you ask? Why, it’s just like the regular Circuit, except it’s open only to students who have been accepted into Magnet’s Conservatory program (Level 5 and above). It’s an awesome way to work weekly with an ensemble and coach as well as get more reps under your belt. We highly recommend it!
Application deadline: Saturday, October 15th at noon
Team announcements: Tuesday, October 18th
Shows: Fridays at 10pm; November 4th through December 16th at the Magnet Training Center Studio
What are you waiting for? Check out the details and apply now!

Announcing the Magnet Diversity Scholarship Program
The Magnet Theater is excited to announce the Magnet Diversity Scholarship Program for 2016. The aim of the scholarship program is to provide access to improv classes to excited and motivated students for whom money is a barrier, and to add new and diverse voices to the Magnet’s vibrant and open community.
Applications are now open for the Magnet Diversity Scholarships–those selected will receive full program scholarships through Magnet’s Improv program. The scholarships will cover Levels One through Level Four, and contingent upon acceptance, Level 5 and Team Performance.
In this first round of the program for 2016, the Magnet will be awarding up to $30,000 worth of scholarships to those selected through the application process.
We are excited to be able to offer full program scholarships, which we feel will provide the best experience to those selected. Due to the limited number of full scholarships available and the expected number of applicants, it is likely that applications will be competitive.
The Magnet Diversity Scholarship Program is aimed at increasing our diversity of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, and age. Students of all experience levels are encouraged to apply, and the scholarships are open to both those who have never studied at Magnet, and to those who have partially completed the program.
Applications are now open and can be filled out here. The application includes general information, and some short essay questions. Applications are due May 18th by midnight, and we hope to notify selected students by Wednesday, June 1st.
There will be a delightful Q & A / informal brunch on Sunday, May 15th from 11am to 2pm, open to all.
Congrats to all of our new Spring 2016 Conservatory Circuit teams! Come see one of their shows, Fridays at 10pm, April 22nd through May 27th. Huzzah!

In efforts to create a safe and supportive environment where creativity can flourish, the Magnet Theater is holding its first “Magnet Conversations” series for women, trans and cis and gender non-conforming, in our community. Please join us! There will be light refreshments.
Leading the social event will be Magnet’s School Director Amy Morrison and Artistic Director Megan Gray. We hope that you will join us on Monday, February 29th, 7pm at the Magnet Training Center.
There is no need to reserve a space.
Refer a friend to a Level One and get $50 off your next class!
Starting February 11th, refer a friend who signs up for a February or March Level One Improv class and you’ll save $50 off your next class!
*To earn the credit, once your friend has signed up for their Feb or March Level One, have them email email@example.com or call Amy at 212-244-2400, and you’ll have a credit on file.
*To get the credit, those being referred must sign up for one of the remaining Level Ones in February or March.
*The credit can be used anytime for any improv, musical improv, or sketch writing class!
Q: Ah! I just referred a friend who sign up for a class last week/month/year! Can I still get the discount?
A: Thank you for spreading the word! Unfortunately the discount is only good for anyone who signs up between 2/11/16 and 3/31/16. Maybe you have another friend who’s interested!
Q: I’m signed up for a class that begins in Feb/March that I’ve already paid for. If I refer a friend to take Level One, can I use the discount on that class?
A: Yes! As long as the class hasn’t yet started and they tell Amy before your class begins.
Q: Can I combine both the referral discount with another cool discount like the Double Major?
A: Sadly no, frown emoticon. But you can keep the credit on file for as long as you’d like!
