Improvocative is the new improv group that James Phillips, assistant professor of theatre, helped organize this spring semester as part of the theatre program.

The group is made up of Joyce Hausermann, Tom Kellett, Liliana Peralta Zapata, Billy Biersack, Tom Fallon, Alexander Florez, Camille Gandolfini, Arianna Guevara, Sarah Fulton, Erin-Therese Vecchi, Brandon Lillard, and Genesis Valverde, along with Megan Panagia as stage manager. True improvisation is getting on stage and performing without any preparation or planning.

The objective is to create an interesting story on stage that somehow relates back to a topic that was called out at the beginning of the performance. Improv is an exciting and nerve-wracking experience that, when done well, is very fulfilling.
