We’re very excited to announce the next round of The Circuit, which will begin Friday, October 4th, 2013!

Applications for Circuit teams will open the first week of September and applicants will be chosen by lottery. If chosen, you will be placed on a team of 8 improvisers and assigned a coach. You will rehearse with your coach and team once a week, with rotating performances on Friday nights at 10PM at the Magnet Studio Theater.

If you have completed Level 3 of Magnet’s Training Program and are not part of a Magnet house improv team, you are eligible to apply.

The Circuit is a great way to gain experience in being in an improv ensemble. We highly encourage you to apply.

Stay tuned for more information and announcements regarding applications in the next few weeks. Thank you and we are looking forward to an exciting new season of The Circuit!

Revolver(web)

If you’ve never seen Junior Varsity, Hello Laser, or The Boss perform at the Magnet Theater, I’m guessing you’ve had some longstanding obligation on Thursday nights for the last several years.

They’re the Magnet Theater’s longest standing, longest standing teams – veterans who’ve been performing high quality improv together for almost seven years. That’s a length of time most people can’t even wrap their heads around in this ever-more present-focused world of ours.

HLJVTB

Now they’re loading themselves up into chambers randomly (not really randomly… there’s a set schedule) for a weekly round of Russian Roulette known as The Revolver. Each week you’ll see two of these teams perform, each in their own unique and seasoned styles.

Come out and see them, every Thursday Night at 8pm.

Then talk to them afterwards. Being around so long, they have stories to tell.

Congrats to Alexis Lambright (Bloomer) and Mallory Schlossberg (The Jezebelles) on having their one woman shows accepted into the 2013 NYC Fringe Festival! We’re very proud of both shows, which have been performed and developed on The Magnet stage! Mallory’s, “Molly Marjorie Rosenblatt Needs A Man (and other stuff)” and Alexis’s, “The Alexis Lambright Tell-A-Thon: Combating Adult Virginity”, will be playing in August in theaters around NYC.
