Philly Improv Theater continues the search for the city’s best and brightest comedic performers for our newest improv house teams! PHIT House Teams are professional ensembles cast and managed by the theater that reflect our over-arching vision and stand as a showcase for students in our exemplary comedy training center. These teams are also provided with a talented, knowledgeable director, given regular rehearsal and stage times (as well as many other benefits) at no cost.
First round auditions will take place on Saturday, October 18th, 2014 between 10am – 4:30pm. Callbacks will be held on Sunday, October 19th from 11am – 2pm. Please hold both of these dates if you are interested in being cast!
Auditions will be held at Philly Improv Theater @ The Adrienne Theatre, 2030 Sansom Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103.
Auditioners must have completed or currently be taking Improv 301 at PHIT by the date of their audition. Those auditioning who have completed PHIT Improv Level 301 longer than a calendar year ago will be considered on an individual basis.
You must be available for the audition times to be considered. No other audition times are available.
ON THE DAY OF THE AUDITION:
Auditioners will be seen every 30 minutes in groups of 6-10. Auditioners do not need to prepare anything in advance. The audition will be entirely improvised. You will be asked to participate in a few short group exercises and will then perform two short scenes.
Auditioners should wear comfortable clothes and shoes. Resumes are not required but will gladly be accepted. Please bring a professional head shot with you. If you don’t have head shots, a recent high quality photo will suffice.
PLEASE ARRIVE AT LEAST FIFTEEN (15) MINUTES PRIOR TO YOUR SCHEDULED AUDITION TIME. There will be a short questionnaire for you to complete prior to your scheduled audition time.
