This fall PHIT will be casting some of the best comedic talent in the city to become a part of three new improv house teams joining our already stellar line up of ensembles. To helm these new teams, PHIT’s Artistic Team approached three talented company members. This week we will officially introduce them and get to know their feelings about being PHIT’s newest house team directors.
Today we are proud to introduce our first new house team director: Meredith Weir!
Meredith is a member of PHIT house team Big Baby, Sunday night favorite The SHAM (soon to be DETENTION), and is PHIT’s Volunteer Coordinator. She is also a member of some notable independent teams like Chaperone, Kid Twist, and Gaper Delay. Meredith also directed the 2013 FRINGE project Reasonable Doubt with fellow PHIT company member Adam Siry.
We asked Meredith her thoughts about being tapped for a directing position:
I was honored to be asked to direct one of the new house teams. There is so much comedic talent all over this city, I can’t wait for the audition process. It will be very difficult to choose a team, but I know at the end of the day, I get to start a new improv family and that’s really exciting!
Audition will be held on Saturday October 18th from 10AM to 4PM and are quickly filling up! If you are interested in auditioning, click here to read the requirements and reserve your spot today!
Keep an eye out for our next two directors posts this week!
