Putting up a "Spank"!

This panel is for anyone looking for a way to bring their unique voice to the UCB Stage. A Spank is a 25-minute show, written by you and performed for the public. It is an “audition” to get additional performances of the show at the UCB Theatre.

Join UCBTLA Artistic Director, Beth Appel, as well as some of UCB's most prolific and successful Spank writers, directors, and actors as they discuss what it takes to put up a great Spank.

THEN, enter the SPANK TANK, where you pitch your Spank idea or perform part of your Spank and a panel of self-made billionaires* give you money**
