Next Meet-up and Scholarship info
We’re having a meet-up this Saturday, June 29 from 12-2pm at the UCB Training Center, which will hopefully include some DCM attendees, so if you’d like to talk about improv, sketch comedy, and diversity with people from other towns, we hope to see you there. Everyone’s invited.
We’re aiming to get the scholarship applications for summer online July 10. You’ll have about a month to complete them.
Finally, we’re hoping to schedule some practice sessions for the weekend of July 20-21. More details about those next week.
