Auditions for our new family friendly improv show took place this past weekend, but we’re not stopping there! This fall PHIT Comedy is also casting a musical improv show and a remount of the popular Dynamite Series show Page One, both of which will premiere early next year.
We’re excited to announce that PHIT’s first ever musical improv show will be directed by our own Dave Sucharski (Channel 77, Trash Island, Detention, The Sham), who has an MFA in Musical Theatre from University of Central Florida, with assistance from musical director Kevin Mucchetti (most recently heard in Deep Blue Theatre Collective’s A Streetcar Named Desire for the 2016 Philadelphia Fringe). The musical improv show will premiere early in 2017 on PHIT’s Mainstage.
In addition, we’re thrilled to have director Lizzie Spellman – Swan Year, Hey Rube, Mayor Karen, Page One (original cast) – helping us remount Page One. In this popular Dynamite Series show, which ended it’s original run in 2014, performers improvise a one act play on the spot- using only the first page of an actual play currently in development as their inspiration.
If you are interested in auditioning for either – or both! – of our new shows, read on for the details of each separate audition.
