Saturday (3/5/16) 5:31pm - ... wherein Peter lists some notes about how he ran auditions for Fiasco.

Sushant Sethi is gearing up to direct Happy Fun Time for the Institution Theater, and has asked me if I had any pointers to pass on, since I'd just finished running auditions for Fiasco.  So I figured I'd write up a post of pointers I want to leave for future!Peter in case I wind up running auditions again.

Monday (1/18/16) 12:20pm - ... wherein there are job openings for Fiasco.

Hi everyone!

It's still a month or two before things really get rolling on Fiasco, but I want to start getting a crew together.  Specifically, I'm looking for a stage manager and an assistant director.  On the tech side, Lindsey (our tech director) is looking for technical improvisors to handle sound effects, lights, a computer-driven display screen, and possibly some "swing techs" who could sub in for various tech roles.
