PHIT Improv intensives give you the benefit of going through an entire PHIT level in a very short amount of time. A class that would normally meet once a week for eight weeks is condensed into meeting just a few days in one week! We also occasionally offer a full program intensive where you complete Improv levels 101 – 401 in just one month! Each intensive includes a pass for free admission to PHIT shows and access to improv practice groups, and a class graduation show.

WHAT STUDENTS SAY ABOUT MOLLY
"Molly is incredible! She has a great ability to critique and make suggestions without making anyone feel inadequate or lacking ability." -- "I loved Molly's enthusiasm for comedy. Her energy kept me going and she was always great at sandwiching compliments with criticism so I never felt discouraged from playing and being vulnerable." -- "The only negative thing about Molly's class was that it had to eventually come to an end!"
