Announcing Our Newest Sketch Show!

Highwire Comedy Co. is excited to announce the relaunch of Fusebox - a new sketch show opportunity for aspiring writers, actors, and directors of the Highwire community!

The first show will be Monday, December 17th at 8:30pm

Here’s how it will work:

We will be accepting applications to be a writer, performer, or director for the next two weeks (deadline to apply is Wednesday November 21). We will then do a table read of all sketches with writers, performers, and directors on Saturday December 1. There will then be two weeks for mini teams to rehearse before a final dress rehearsal on Sunday December 16.

Check out the details below for application information and requirements.

WRITERS:

The minimum requirement for a writer to have their sketch considered is prior involvement on a Livewire team or prior or current enrollment in Highwire’s Sketch Writing program. Current Livewire writers are not eligible to apply as a writer. Writers are required to attend the Table Read on Saturday December 1 from 6:30pm - 8:30pm as well as the show on Monday December 17. Writers are encouraged (but not required) to attend rehearsals of their sketch(es). In addition, writers are encouraged to meet up with the director(s) of their material after the table read to go over any notes or revisions prior to the first rehearsal.
