For the first time since 2013 PHIT is taking part in the Philadelphia Fringe Festival! We will be producing six great shows as part of the festival that we are super excited about. We’ll be sharing more info on each show very soon. For now- auditions!
We are looking to fill some roles for two of our Fringe Festival productions “Becoming Vegan” and “Town”. Below you will find all the necessary audition information. Auditions for Becoming Vegan have ended, but Town is coming up! Hope to see you there!

ABOUT THE SHOW
Welcome to TOWN! TOWN is in America, maybe. TOWN is an inviting place where nothing bad happens. The locals of TOWN are hiding plenty of secrets – silly secrets, sinister secrets, and they will all be revealed by the end of the metaphysical horror-comedy modeled after Thornton Wilder’s classic “Our Town”. Written/Directed by Jolie Darrow and Jack O’Keeffe.
