Happy Tuesday everyone!
Following our announcements about our new Artistic Director, Derek Hayes, and new Education Director, Kelly Jennings, we are excited to provide a further update regarding the new senior leadership team at the theater. Today, we are announcing our new Operations Director!
Haley Fluke (she/her) is an artistic producer and dramaturg originally from Astoria, Oregon (yes, the one from the Goonies). On the West Coast, she held administrative positions at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Washington Ensemble Theatre, Seattle’s Gay City Arts Project, and Our Shoes are Red/The Performance Lab. She most recently served as the Marketing and Box Office Manager of Quintessence Theatre in Philadelphia’s Mt. Airy neighborhood. Prior to moving to the city, Haley worked as a Project Manager for PatronManager, a Salesforce based ticketing CRM, and the Literary Manager of Company One Theatre in Boston. She is a member of LMDA and has helped with new play development projects at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center, the Seven Devils New Play Conference, Fresh Ink Theatre, and TC Squared, among others. In her spare time, Haley runs Shakespeare on Tap, a troupe that performs interactive Shakespeare in local bars, along with her partner. They live in West Philly, have no pets by choice, and enjoy complicated cooking projects and making puppets.
If you’d like to contact Haley as she is getting started, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Derek, Kelly, and Haley represent Philly Improv Theater’s new Senior Leadership Team. Each position will make the important decisions about their individual areas of responsibility, and make decisions together on major issues which impact the theater and community as a whole.
We are happy to finish filling out the Senior Leadership Team for PHIT so that we can start providing updates on a new vision for the theater and timelines for our first classes, auditions, and performances in over two years! We expect to have more regular updates and announcements moving forward. The first of which is right now…
