Hello friends and family at the Magnet Theater.

August makes the end of summer Megawatt, and with the change of season the time has come for me to step down as Megawatt director. Come September, I’ll be turning the show over to the endlessly amazing Nick Kanellis.

Nick Kanellis, you guys!

To accommodate the transition, we’ve decided to push the next audition back to mid-September. Dates will officially be announced on this blog within the week.

I’ve had the privilege of getting to be a part of this show for the last four years, and have watched it grow in leaps and bounds. Hell, I’ve watched the whole theater grow in leaps and bounds. The work on the Magnet stage has never been funnier, smarter, or more exciting to watch. And there’s no doubt that it will only be getting more exciting as we move forward. The bar just gets higher and higher. Well done, everyone.

It’s truly been an honor to have been a part of all this.

Megawatt is brilliant. Magnet is brilliant. Long live improv!
