Once again over 100 improvisers came out this week to audition for new improv House Teams at Philly Improv Theater. Our three directors, David Donnella, Erin Pitts and Hunter Steffes had quite a challenge in casting these teams from the incredible talent seen over the two days. Today we announce the new teams Codename Hamilton, Codename Istanbul and Codename Johannesburg.  As always, we will find out the teams’ real names at their premieres in August.

I would like to thank all of the talented performers that came out to vie for a spot on the teams. There will be many more opportunities to enjoy the work of the performers that did not get cast this time through their participation in special short-run shows, in Dynamite series shows, on Launch Pad teams and through independent projects. The talent in Philadelphia is growing larger and stronger each year as is the number of opportunities to perform improv, sketch, stand-up or in a variety show at PHIT and throughout the city.
