Welcome to the the Secret Society, a one stop shop for improvisers looking to hone their craft while also getting in more regular performances and rehearsals.

How it works: You submit an application. If selected, you pay a fee of $300 over four months (payment plans available) that covers coaches, rehearsal space, promotion and management. The teams will be decided by the Secret Society coaches and the Mettlesome Stakeholders based on lottery, availability, diversity, interest, and experience. 

After four months, just like the ephemeral magic that is improv, the teams disappear into the wind, only to be whispered about as “you had be there to see it” experiences.

What you get: A team of diverse improvisers with differing levels of experience, a talented and insightful coach, a weekly rehearsal space, and two shows a month for three months (+ one month of rehearsal). 

Society members also get free entry to any Mettlesome show and $50 off any multi-week Mettlesome Lab. 

SECRET SOCIETY APPLICATIONS ARE NOW ONLINE!

APPLICATIONS CLOSE JANUARY 18.
