About the Instructor:

Francesca (she/her) is thrilled to be back teaching Improv at PHIT again! She studied Theatre at Florida State University, where she fell in love with improv, sketch comedy, and comedy writing. Francesca has had two original shows produced, and has worked theaters around Philly and the country! Currently, she is helping lead the PHIT Queer Practice Group and performing in Teacher’s Lounge at PHIT Harold Nights. In Francesca’s class, you can expect energy, excitement, patience, and zero judgment.

What others say:

"She was the absolute best! I think she made 101 what it was!! We had so much fun as a class that we wanted to all take 201 together! Francesca was a huge reason for that."

"Francesca is so supportive and made our classroom a safe space to play and learn. She’s the best hype woman and had great notes for us that we could learn from without feeling discouraged "
