Instructor: Michael Lutton

Michael moved to New York in 2006 to study acting at the Michael Howard Studios Conservatory. After Rachel Hamilton and Armando Diaz came in to do a week-long improv workshop, he was hooked. He has been taking classes and performing at the Magnet ever since. In addition to Armando and Rachel, he's had the pleasure of studying with James Eason, Tara Copeland, Michael Martin, Mark Grenier, and Alex Marino. Michael currently performs with Horses on Wednesday nights and in the Made Up Musical on Friday nights.

Rick Andrews is a teacher and performer at The Magnet Theater, and has been studying, performing, and teaching improvisation since 1999. He began improvising with Improv Boston, and continued with a stint in Saint Louis, MO. He has been fortunate to learn from many improv greats, including Armando Diaz, Ed Herbstman, Joe Bill, Mark Sutton, Amy Poehler, Ian Roberts, Will Luera, Jill Bernard, and more.

Rick has taught workshops at improv festivals across the country, including the Boston Improv Festival, Baltimore Improv Festival, Black Box Atlanta, and many more. He has taught improvisation to people as old as 75 and as young as 6, and has done workshops for production companies and zoos alike.

He enjoys running, putting words on pages, thinking about the brain, and he loves improv more than anything.
