Description

pH is proud to welcome you to their improvised one-act musical, pHamily the Musical! pHamily is a show about the dynamics of a family and how relationships with your family members can affect your life. In pHamily, pH will explore all the nuances that make up any family, and they will get your help to do it.

Each show will feature 6 excited performers and one magical musical director on the piano ready to weave whatever magical story you are ready to give them. Audience suggestions help name the character, create the character, shape events in their lives, and even give us the styles of songs they will sing. Be ready, because at any moment they could burst into song, or ask you for a suggestion of what happens next in our story. It’s like a Choose Your Own Adventure Musical. Singing, dancing and making fun of families, what more do you want?

Sometimes touching, sometimes scary but always funny…pHamily. Everybody’s is different.
