Betty Teams

UCB's character house team featuring new character pieces ever month!


What Are Betty Teams?

Betty Teams are UCB's character teams (formerly Characters Welcome). 8-10 performers are selected from an audition to develop 3-5 minute character pieces to be showcased at the monthly show.

Betty Night runs about an hour and consists of brand new material written specifically for Betty Night.

Betty Team Eligibility

Auditions for Betty Night occur annually. Betty Teams are expected to put up shows featuring polished, funny, UCB-style, game-based characters. Every Betty Team member is expected to boldly bring their unique voice and sense of humor to shows. Eligibility for performers will be announced during the next round of auditions.
