SECOND IMPROV SEASON 17
Back for another great season in a brand new venue.
Split Second Improv brings
the best in live
short form improv comedy to eastside audiences!
If you are new to live improv or you've been coming to our
shows for years, it doesn't matter because you'll never see
the same show twice. Why? Because YOU craft our show. All of
our scenes are based on audience suggestion. But
wait...there's more! Every show is a competition pitting two
teams of the best improvisers around against each other for
your entertainment. Winners determined by the audience
applause. Tell your friends...tell your family...and then
bring them along to Split Second Improv at the
SecondStory Hideaway in the Redmond Town Center!
Bring the whole family along
for our "Sweet Saturdays at
Seven" when all of the actions is PG or join us
night at 8pm for the wildly popular "Split Second Blue Show"
where anything can happen.

Director of Split Second Improv
did you first become interested in theater?
I have been performing since the age of 5, I studied
theater in high school in my home state of Utah and attended
college at Southern Utah University where I received a BS in
theater arts and dance.
2. Were you cast in any of SecondStory’s productions
before you became Artistic Director for Split Second Improv?
I have been performing and directing at SSR since the 3rd
season. I have also served as box office manager, writer,
scenic designer, and artistic associate.
3. In your opinion, what is the key to becoming
successful in this industry of the Arts?
Success in the Arts is relative. If you measure success
by money in the bank, you could work your whole life and
never be as successful as some lucky sole who was in the
right place at the right time. If you are able to make your
art and that is what makes you happy, I would say that you
are successful. Not too many people can say that.
Unfortunately the term "starving artist" is more truth than
fiction. My advice is you may not be the best but you need
to always do your best.
4. Tell us a bit about Split Second Improv. What does it
mean and who is involved?
Split Second improv is a mixture of some of the best
improvisers and actors from around the region. We have a
wonderful variety of talent, skill level as well as age. We
have improvisers who have been performing for many years
with teams from Seattle as well as other states, and we have
players who bring fresh new talent and perspective. The best
thing about improv is that you truly never know what is
going to happen. Each and every show is based on audience
suggestion, and since no audience is the same, no show is
the same. It is a truly unique experience. Improv really is
acting in its purest form. Characters evolve right in front
of the audience. Very real.
5. What makes SSR an outstanding theater in Redmond?
I think that SSR is outstanding because of the variety of
theater that we bring to Redmond. So many theaters give the
audience one type of experience or another, but audiences at
SSR can enjoy comedies, musicals, dramas, improv, theater
for young audiences, live musicians and SSR even brings
education to the community through our classes. We are a
professional theater that isn't limited by genre.
6. If not theater, what would you be doing?
No matter where I go, the arts will always be a part of my
life. I am fortunate to share this passion with my children
who are wonderful artists, and have even assisted me with my
directing duties on more than one occasion. No matter what
form it takes, as long as I have art, I am happy.
