"They asked us," Slack said of how the latter came about.
The No Pants Players are also part of FestivALL in June, though they're a little unclear as to what exactly they're doing.
"I think it's going to be bigger than other things we've done," Bukovinsky said.
The troupe has been booked again for HallowEast in October, which happened shortly after its last show for that event.
Aside from local commitments, the No Pants Players have ambitions to take the show out of town more and perhaps further than ever before. They're also interested in expanding the types of shows they do past the improv comedy games, which have been their stock and trade for more than a decade.
"We also want to do more videos," Slack said.
They're even interested in entering comedy competitions, but to do most of that, they need more people.
"So we're not looking to replace anyone," Bukovinsky said. "We're just looking to expand."
"We want to see what kind of talent is out there," Kevin Pauley said. "Maybe pump some new blood in, some new ideas. This is definitely about evolution of the group and where we could go."
They're looking to add as many as three people to the roster, though they're not really trying to fill a specific number of slots. If they only find one new cast member, that would be fine.
"We're definitely looking at quality over quantity," King said.
But more diversity in the ranks wouldn't hurt, the group agreed.
"I think we'd all like to see more funny women come out for the audition," Bukovinsky said. "We know they're out there; they're just not as visible."
Not that anyone is saying funny women are actually invisible. They just want to see them at the audition.
