Solo workshop with Kim Porter
Every Sunday from 6:30-9:30pm
$15 per session

Do you need something meaningful to do between acting gigs? Do you have a story you are itching to tell? Let award-winning writer/performer Kim Porter help you make that happen at the Solo Workshop.

This workshop is designed to help participants generate new material, support projects already in development, and offer accountability in a relaxed and generous small group environment.

The Solo Workshop is designed to meet the participant where they are and is therefore ideal for both beginners and established writer-performers.

Because the Solo Workshop is employing an on-going, drop-in model for participation, artists can work at their own pace and budget.

For more information about the Solo Workshop contact Kim Porter at

Submit your team for the June schedule.

Submission form
Featured Performer: Michael Ziman
Michael first started improvising on a short form team in high school. It was about 10 years later in 2015 when he picked it back up again this time taking on long form. Some of the teams that have influenced him are Cook County Social Club, Grandma's Ashes, TJ & Dave and Heather Anne Campbell. Locally he enjoys Skewed News Hour. 
He enjoys performing in patient and grounded two person shows along with fast, goofy and gamey shows. The best part of improv for Michael is that improv satisfies all the desires to be creative and expressive that get  repressed in everyday life.

Birds and Broads

Cast: Jacque Arend and Liz Hutchman

Starting as a one-night-only performance, Birds & Broads have now been performing together for four years. They focus on a single location scene, creating a strong relationship at the top after which they may or may not explore the other rich characters who inhabit that space. Their shows bounce from being utterly hilarious to edge-of-your-seat engaging.

Featured Performer: Jeremy Schwartz
Jeremy started improvising in 2003. Some of his influences include Shane Shannon, Liz Hutchman and Matt Higbee. He started in shortform improv and has since found longform in which he loves the formats. Among his favorite formats are the Slacker and Monoscene.
The part of improv that he enjoys most is the exploration of characters, sceneries, relationships and backstories. He loves to dive into the mentality of "if this is true what else is true" in this universe.He is a firm believer that improv is for everyone. He thinks the skills learned within this craft are transferable to so many life situations.

He also has two dogs.

Favorite quote/advice from a coach/instructor:
If you tell the truth you never have to remember anything -Dave Rasowski

You can see Jeremy perform with:
Hearts on Fire every 2nd Saturday
Featured team every third Saturday



Cast: Chris Hooper, Eric Storie, Rick Grove,Sam Haldiman and Sara Palmer with accompanist Chad Michael Lawson

The Displacers have been performing the long-form signature format the Harold for five years. They perform with a high energy and create a rich cast of characters that will keep you talking about their show for days. It's no use trying to explain the show to a friend. Tell them they just need to be there.
