Meet the gorgeous and talented Anne B.!
How long have you been improvising?
I've been improvising for about 3 years.
How long have you been involved with the UIG?
This is my second year with UIG!
What or who got you interested in improv?
In high school, I saw some Rapid Fire Theatre shows and I knew I had to try it, and I knew there was an improv club at the university and I knew I'd regret it if I never joined.
What is something most people don't know about UIG?
Most people don't know that we take dressing up for our Halloween show very seriously.
What is the best part about being a member of UIG?
The best part about UIG is the people you meet. It's a really supportive group to learn improv with--as well as party with. It's great because it makes university more than just work and studying.
Are there scenes or lines that have stuck with you?
Once I was playing this emotionless mother and said; "I prefer a deadpan household," like really, deadpan….and stuff.
What advice would you give someone interested in trying improv?
Don't be scared! People improvise everyday! This is just doing it on a stage, in front of an audience. Life is improvised!
What is your field of study/work/interest outside of improv?
I'm a Film Studies Major, so I love tv shows and movies. I also do some writing, drawing and I've been playing on a soccer team since I was a timbit.
Anything else you want to add?
The best moment of my life was when I climbed the rope to the top of the gymnasium. I'm looking for an upgrade.
Your last chance to see Anne B. perform for the season is this Thursday, March 24th at 7:00pm in Humanities Lecture Hall 1. See you there!
