1 Improviser 2 Chairs – On tour

“These hands-on experiences are priceless. Stephanie is talented and knowledgeable and approaches Improv with a fun loving attitude. She has provided my students with a unique opportunity to fine tune their skills and gain confidence in their abilities as improvisers. For students to experience the Performance aspect of Improv in a real theatre environment is vital. I thank her for all her hard work.”

What is more frightening then doing an entire show alone on stage? How about bringing up an audience member, who has never attempted improv before, to perform with you? What could go wrong?!

An idea created by 30 Rock‘s Scott Adsit for short performance games and further developed into a long-format by Matt Holmes, Stephanie brings this highly risky and always entertaining improv format to Canada!

Stephanie personally attempted this concept as a short segment in the “Rack pack presents…” show in June 2013, where she pulled up 3 unsuspecting audience members over the 3 day run.

Why is Stephanie doing this? To prove two of the “improv laws” that she teaches daily in her classes:

1) ANYONE can improvise

2) If you take care of your scene partner you will have success

She is hoping to bring the format to several festivals in Canada and would like to add the improvised musical component as her first love has always been musical improv…let’s see if she can get an audience member singing!
