Announcing auditions for PHIT’s Harold Team program! August 18, 20, and 21.

We are thrilled to announce auditions for our revamped Harold Team program, now officially an extension of our Training Center.

Please take a moment to review our Harold Team Expectations document to get a sense of the program’s objectives and how it works. Harold Teams perform on a rotating basis on Harold Night – Thursdays with curtains at 7:30 PM, so players must have good availability for those shows (as well as a recurring weekly rehearsal with their team). These auditions are for the rehearsal/performance cycle from September through December 2022, with shows on Thursdays starting in October.

For this round of auditions, we are setting eligibility at completing at least one long form improv class at PHIT or another theater, or having commensurate training and/or performance experience. Audition eligibility for people with these circumstances will be confirmed on a case-by-case basis.

Below are some general FAQs:

How often will these auditions be held?

Harold team auditions will typically take place towards the end of each cycle (every 4 months), so the next round will take place in early to mid December.

Brand new teams will be created for this current round of auditions, but in future auditions, the creation of new teams will be dependent on the number of roster spots available on existing teams (from players leaving the program) combined with the capacity we have to expand.

Who monitors auditions?

Typically, the artistic director along with present and future Harold Team coaches. We may also invite other PHIT instructors/members of the community to help with the casting process.

How do coaching fees work?

Fees are $55, paid monthly through PayPal. You can set up a recurring charge so you will be automatically charged. When you are placed on a Harold Team, you will receive more direction on how to pay these fees, which directly offset the costs of coaching and rental space. If you need to discuss the coaching fees payment, please contact PHIT’s artistic director.
