ADAM RICE was an integral member of my former youth theatre company BEACH KIDS ON BROADWAY based in Manhattan Beach from 2002 to 2005. Improvisational methods played a huge part in this company’s process, especially the games, techniques, and theories of IMPRO pioneer Keith Johnstone. Observing the best improvisers, like Adam, thrive using Johnstone’s Impro System is what initially inspired me to pursue improvisational theatre as my main field of research and, subsequently, to seek out the Master of Impro himself.

I hope to see you there!
