Questions.

I'm in an improvisational comedy troupe, and the last two times we've held auditions we've had a really lousy turnout (sadly). A lot of people who have said they think it would be fun to do are intimidated by the idea of improv comedy, so we are creating some workshops for people to come and learn and hopefully be inspired to try out eventually. However, I want to make sure that all our prep work on the workshops doesn't go to waste, so doing publicizing for these is going to be top priority. We have to get the word out.

This is where the questions come in: How does one best spread the word about something like this? What information should be included on flyers? Where are the best places to advertise this sort of thing? Should we advertise in newspapers? Which ones? Any other advice?

We have a great group of four folks currently in the troupe, and we're looking to build our group up to 10-12 people. Our shows routinely draw a good crowd of 60+ people. The time committment usually is only one workshop a week, sometimes two the week before shows. We're trying to get involved in a few improv conferences in the midwest. It's a paying gig.

Any help here would be totally appreciated. Thanks!

Send a bunch of flyers to all of the local colleges! I'm sure at least someone around will join up from there.
