About From The Top

From The Top is a musical improv troupe, a House Team at Unscrewed Theater, and a fun group of people to play and laugh with. We perform every month on the first Friday at 7:30pm (and occasionally as part of special event shows, too).

We’re looking for new members!

Are you a confident singer who’s always wanted the PERFECT role? Are you a great improviser who thinks, ‘That would be a GREAT place for a song!’ during your scenes? Are you an instrumentalist (piano, guitar, etc.) looking to try improvisational accompaniment? Then auditioning for From The Top is for you!

Make your own perfect roles in EVERY musical. Sing when words alone will no longer do. Create the music that drives good stories. With us!

If you’re stronger in singing or stronger in improv, never fear, we work on both every week, so we’re always improving.

Check us out first!

If you’ve never seen From The Top perform, or it’s been a while, come check out our May show!

Friday, May 3 at 7:30pm at Unscrewed Theater

About the Audition

First, we’ll warm up as a group: vocal warm-ups and improv warm-ups. Then we’ll rotate everyone through small groups, which will include current members of From The Top, for improvised musical scenes and exercices to get a sense of your style of play and to assess how well you fit with From The Top storytelling. 

Arrive at the theater by 7:00pm MST. We anticipate being done by 8:30, but expect no longer than a two-hour commitment.

It will be a fun evening of musical improv!

The Fine Print

Below are a set of expectations for From The Top members. If you plan to audition, you must agree to them.

“Do I have to fill out the form to audition?” If possible, yes. It’s easiest on us if we know how many people to expect in advance, but it’s not required.

From The Top Expectations

  • All members of Unscrewed Theater House Teams are strongly encouraged to volunteer, in some capacity, at the theater at least once per month. Most choose to volunteer during Friday or Saturday shows for front-of-house, tech, or house management shifts, but there are other opportunities that may better suit your skills and availability. Volunteering is how we pay back the theater for rehearsal space.
  • Attending all rehearsals (Wednesdays at 6:30pm) is highly encouraged. However, real life is real life, and we strive to accommodate everyone’s busy schedules as best we can while aiming for the highest caliber performances through weekly rehearsals. Missing a significant number of rehearsals may result in not being cast in one or more shows.
  • From The Top shows are billed as family-friendly, and kids frequently attend our performances. You are expected to perform within the constraints of language, subject matter, and situations appropriate to a family-friendly show.
  • Adherence to Unscrewed Theater’s Discrimination and Harassment Prevention Policy is required.
