I don't understand what they mean by practice group. Is that just a group of people that rehearses without the intent of putting something up in front of an audience? Or is it additional players that rehearses with a performing group like some sort of sports team practice squad?

I can never have 100%... no matter what I do, I'll never be in a high school improv troupe. I could ask to join one, but that would be really creepy.

Yes, I interpret it to be a skills based rehearsal -- not working on a show, just practicing improv skills -- it may be students getting together to play with the stuff they are working on in class, or it may be a company based rehearsal that everyone can join with or without specific goals, or it may just be a group of people who want to get together and work on stuff -- kind of like the Tuesday Night Jam at the Hideout used to be.

Oh! Some of my classmates do that, from time to time. Usually at Paul's or Bob's house. Dunno if they still do.

PGraph started as a practice group. I mean, I think we knew we wanted to perform eventually, but it started as just us practicing with no pressure of an upcoming show. I highly recommend it.

Back in December '09, I was at "33.63636% - Improv Geekactular".  Now I'm up to "38.63636% - Improv Geekariffic"!

(Presumably I'll make it up to 43.63636% sometime in 2013.)
