Sketch comedy writers interested in joining Philly Improv Theater‘s third Sketch House Team as a part of the writing staff can submit packets from now until the deadline of Monday, May 27 to firstname.lastname@example.org. To be considered for a spot writers should submit a packet consisting of:
- A brief cover letter (1-page maximum – single spaced, size 10 font) explaining what you will bring to the writing team.
- Three (3) different original sketches you’ve written without a writing partner. Please arrange these sketches in order with what you feel is your strongest sketch first.
- Three (3) additional 1-2 sentence pitches of other sketch ideas you have.
More on the team from PHIT’s website:
PHIT will once again be producing an all-new sketch revue show for the 2013 FringeArts Festival. Working together during the summer months under the supervision of a Head Writer and Director a group of writers and performers will put together a 40-45 minute sketch show of entirely original material that will debut Thursday, September 5th, 2013 and run nightly through September 8th. Writers and performers will not necessarily overlap, so if you only want to create sketches and don’t want to appear on stage you’ll be able to do that. PHIT seeks only writers at this time (auditions for performers will occur later, during the summer) and encourages all submissions regardless of race, ethnic or national origin, sex, sexual preference, religion, disability or age. Depending on the success of the FringeArts Festival show, the team may be given the opportunity to continue mounting further shows with support from PHIT.
