Performing Improv Ensembles™ (P.I.E.)
Commit, connect, learn, rehearse, perform, improve, repeat…
Leela’s Performing Improv Ensemble™ Program offers improvisors the rare and valuable opportunity to develop mastery by becoming an active member of a committed ensemble that consistently improves over a long period of time under the guidance of a highly experienced improvisational theatre director.
Performing Improv Ensemble™ members have the invaluable opportunity to learn, rehearse, and perform Leela’s signature style of improvisation in a committed ensemble for three (3) consecutive months. Each Performing Improv Ensemble™ is audition-based and limited to 8 people. Upon completion of the three (3) month commitment, select members are invited to re-commit to their ensemble by signing up for another three (3) month commitment. We schedule quarterly auditions to allow new members to join and current members the flexibility to take breaks, vacations, and participate in other projects. This balance of commitment and flexibility allows Performing Improv Ensemble™ members to stay committed to one another over time, thus creating a tight-knit high quality ensemble while building their own unique audience.
Performing Improv Ensembles™ require a $350 contribution every 3 months. This allows Leela to sustain by helping to pay for rehearsal and performance space, marketing, management, director’s fees, and other administrative costs. The $350 contribution is used to provide:
