PHIT will be holding open-call auditions for our House Teams on Saturday, February 4th, 2012 from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.. Auditions will be held at Philly Improv Theater @ The Shubin Theatre, 407 Bainbridge Street, Philadelphia, PA 19147.
CALLBACKS will be held during the evening from 7:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday, February 7, 2012 and Wednesday, February 8, 2012 (times and locations will vary depending on the group for which you are considered during callbacks).
Auditioners should have prior improv experience (either in a class or as a performer), auditioners who have taken classes at PHIT will not be given special preference over those who have studied elsewhere, although we will have had more time to see you perform which may help.
You must be available for the audition times to be considered. No other audition times are available.
Auditioners will be seen every 30 minutes in groups of 6-10. Auditioners do not need to prepare anything in advance. The audition will be entirely improvised. You will be asked to participate in a few short group exercises and will then perform two short scenes.
Auditioners should wear comfortable clothes and shoes. Resumes are not required but will gladly be accepted. Please bring a headshot with you. If you don't have headshots, a recent snapshot will suffice.
PLEASE ARRIVE AT LEAST FIFTEEN (15) MINUTES PRIOR TO YOUR SCHEDULED AUDITION TIME. There will be a short questionnaire for you to complete prior to your scheduled audition time.
Sign-ups begin immediately. To secure an audition time please email your name, phone number, and a preferred time (if any) to:
You will receive a confirmation message within two (2) business days - for example, if you contact us on Monday you'll hear from us by Wednesday, or if you contact us on Friday, you'll hear from us by the following Tuesday). We will accept sign-ups until no audition times remain. All specific audition times are first-come-first-served.
There are no alternate times. If you are not available for these audition dates and times, please do not email or call to ask for an exception - you simply will not be able to audition. If you are interested in auditioning, you must sign-up for one of our announced timeslots.
