The Meeting is a comedy series about a group of wannabe screenwriters who meet once a week to discuss what they aren’t doing. Their “discussions” usually deteriorate into nonsense, or meetings that have absolutely nothing to do with writing a screenplay.

Visit YouTube and watch Episode One and Episode Two of The Meeting. Then improvise an audition based on one of the following options:

Option 1: Do an impersonation of one of the characters.

Option 2: Improvise the inner monologue of one of the characters.

Option 3: Create a character you feel would make a positive contribution to the next episode.

How to Apply:

  1. Download clapit from the iTunes App Store

  2. Between November 20-December 4, 2017, post one 20-second video audition onto clapit. Be sure to write #themeeting & the character breakdown option that you chose (Option 1, 2, or 3) in your post.

  3. Invite your family, friends & fans over text, email & social media to download clapit and “clap” (vote) your performance.

  4. Executive Producer Howard Nash, Director Russ Emanuel, and Executive Producers Mary Jane Bulseco & PJ Bedwell will choose one male winner from the top five most clapped male auditions and one female winner from the top five most clapped female auditions.
