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

Featured Performer: Raphael Robbins
Raphael registered for his first improv work after a celebrity responded to him on Twitter and he couldn't think of a good comeback. Since then he has been regularly performing for the last five years. A few national influences of his Harold Ramis, Andy Kaufman, John Belushi and Gene Wilder to name a few. Locally he has been inspired by Jacque, Sam, Stacey, Liz and Mack along with his teams Plunk! and Adult Bakery.
Raphael prefers grounded , patient scenes that organically shifts into absurdity. He also enjoys the Deconstruction. He feels everything creative starts with improv and loves that the performers are discovering themselves and their world at the same time as the audience. An interesting fact about Raphael is that he owns an accordian. 

Favorite quote/advice from a coach/instructor: 
 Raphael didn't have any specific quote or advice.

Deconstruction Workshop
Using the Deconstruction form we will explore position play and how the different types of scenes can increase your improv tools for scene work and performance. We will explore; grounded, realistic scenes, peas in a pod, character driven thematic scenes, straight/absurd, commentary scenes, creating a run of fast callbacks and connections, as well as heightening relationships to fulfill an arc of your show. You will walk away from this class with insight to understanding what kind of scene you are in so you can work with your partners to build on the most interesting and dynamic material. You will exercise your muscles for fun, playful ensemble work while seeing the bigger picture to create more cohesive performances overall. This class is for skill building and does not include a performance. Class size is limited.

Shortform Speakeasy 
Featured Performer: Rachel Tullio
Rachel started taking classes in 2011 but feels improv has always been in her life, especially with her dad growing up. Comedy has always been a big factor in her life watchs anything from sitcoms, sketch, variety and more. Performers like Lucille Ball, Gilda Radner, Carol Burnett to name a few shaped her concept of comedy at a young age.
Rachel doesn't feel she has a specific style or format that she plays because improv is a journey that by nature will change itself. She enjoys playing with absurdity and emotion and enjoys finding a theme that subtly threads it way through the show. She f eels an improv performance can be therapeutic and freeing and loves that it''s an environment that supports listening. Did you know she also drove a pea viner as a summer job in high school? 

Favorite quote/advice from a coach/instructor:
Stop wasting time on stupid boys - Jill Bernard

You can see Rachel perform with:
New Heart every 4th Saturday
Featured team every third Saturday

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.
