PHIT’s most recent audition process took place May 17 and May 19 to cast for two new Wednesday House Teams that will premier in August. The talented performers that took part in the process were once again amazing, and both of our new directors had their work cut out for them deciding who would be cast on these teams. After some spirited deliberation and days of meetings and emails, we are thrilled to announce our new line ups. Please welcome Codename Amsterdam and Codename Barcelona to the PHIT family! There will be a lot of hard work for them between now and August, and we are all looking forward to the amazing shows I know these teams will put on. And as always we will find out their real team names at the premiere.
I would also like to thank each and every performer who came out to vie for a spot on the teams and didn’t get a call back. Please know that the audition process is tough, and was made that much tougher for the directors by all of the really talented performers that participated. Philadelphia has become such a vibrant comedy scene in the past few years, due in no small part to everyone who has stepped on stage to perform improv, sketch, or stand-up. You are what make not only the comedy scene in this city great, but make the city as a whole that much more wonderful. Remember Philly Improv Theater has many opportunities for performances, so keep an eye out for upcoming auditions and special projects that will need the support and participation of talented performers like you!
