Welcome to the corner of business and theatre – where worlds intersect to create a more dynamic, supportive, authentic and collaborative working team. Using tried and true theatre techniques, we introduce non-actors to a world of play, thereby reducing anxiety, building trust and elevating the team dynamic. Through short games and exercises, your team learns to more effectively communicate, collaborate and create! No boring lectures here, we play our way into building a better business world!

We’re excited to have Jessica MacMaster joining us for this module! Jessica MacMaster has been improvising her whole life. But so have you. She started seriously studying improv 10 years ago when she began performing with the Swinging Johnson Brothers in Denver. Now, a co-founder of the Comedy Brewers in Fort Collins, JMac performs for private events and at the Bas Bleu Theater where she also taught improv workshops. She can be seen performing in ‘mainstage’ shows at Openstage Theatre Company, Bas Bleu Theatre Company, and The Dinner Detective Murder Mystery Dinner Show. JMac is also a co-producer of the Fort Collins Fringe Festival. Jessica’s objective is to cultivate others’ innate creativity through designing a fun, supportive environment to let it all out.
