The UP Committee

The volunteer UP Committee meets monthly to administer the Unscripted Players, its shows, socials and other activities.  They work hard to make sure that UP is a friendly, inclusive and positive environment that makes great amateur improv work. 

The UP Committee is elected once a year at UP's Annual General Meeting in September. All UP members are allowed to stand for election.
