RULES OF INDIE CAGE MATCH
-Each team gets 15 minutes to perform followed by fun and whimsical comments from the panel.
-This is an opportunity for indie teams (in contrast to theatre house teams). We define "indie team" as a team containing no more than 50% Harold or Lloyd team members.
-All team members must have taken at least Level 201 at UCB (or equivalent)
-Your starting cast list must remain the same. You cannot add members that are not in your original cast list if you win and continue to compete. If you have cast missing for one they can join for other shows.
-Winner comes back to compete the following week.
-Once a team has won three times in a row they get a future spot at CageMatch NYC at UCB Chelsea; additionally, after three wins a team is retired from Indie Cage Match for that season.
-The winner is determined from both audience voting and voting from a panel of three judges. Each of the three judges gets one vote and the audience pick (as determined by a popular ballot vote at end of show) gets two votes.
