Philly Improv Theater is excited to announce that we are holding auditions for a new production of Myths & Monsters once again directed by the fantastic Nick Gillette! A remount of the 2011 Fringe Festival hit, MYTHS & MONSTERS is a live improvised performance following the story beats of Joseph Campbell’s theory of the hero’s journey. A team of actors depict monstrous beasts and terrifying deities encountered during a spontaneously created theatrical tale of trials and transformation of a lone hero. Are you interested in being a myth and/or monster? We hope to see you at auditions!
