Super Origins: Improvised Superhero Movie

Summer blockbusters are here! Catch an Improvised Movie featuring never-before-seen superheroes.

Come watch us as we build the PHIT Cinematic Universe!
Structure: Using the format of the Improvised movie, Super Origins will play with tropes like superhero origin events, supervillains, and the stakes and complications created by extraordinary circumstances. Looking for players that can deliver “Big Wants” in scenes. Experience or interest in the Harold format is a bonus.
Rehearsals: Sundays 10am-12pm April 23rd through May 21st
Shows:  Fridays 8pm May 12th, 19th, and 26th

Director: Sam Miller(he/him) is a veteran improviser, recovering writer and aspiring clown. Sam currently performs with the PHIT Harold Team Schmooty. He recently performed in and produced the holiday sitcom show Santa! at PHIT. Prior to Philadelphia, Sam lived in Los Angeles where he studied at iO West, UCB and The Clown School. He also performed as part of the duo Folly (“clowns improvising theater”). Sam’s writing credits include sitcoms on CBS, Disney and YouTube Red, which was, in fact, a thing.

Truth Be Told: Stories Inspired by Stories

A series of comedic scenes inspired by true monologues inspired by comedic scenes.

Structure: Truth Be Told will utilize monologues to transitions into scenes, which when swept give birth to another short monologue delivered by the editor on a word or phrase pulled from the previous scene. This resets the pattern and follows it again with the pace of the show gradually picking up as time goes on. Looking for players with solid fundamentals and interesting monologue delivery, while also able to discover and play in beautiful moments of truth.
Rehearsals: Saturdays 1-3pm April 22nd through May 20th
Shows:  Saturdays 7pm May 20th, 27th, June 3rd and June 10th

Director: Dominick “Dom” Arp (he/him) has been doing improv for the last 10 years and has done a smorgasbord of performing with a focus on narrative and digital improv. Beyond teaching at PHIT, he is currently a performer with Show & Tell Live, Roll Play, & KDM. He is also the producer of Be Kind: A Rewind Show & 3-2-1. Additionally, he is the president of the Philly Improv Book Club, as well as a member of the PHIT Programming Committee. Having trained in both public speaking & theater, he is passionate about the power of combining theory, meaningful direction, and play in order to grow the Philly improv community into something special.
