For as long as I’ve been involved with improv in Austin I’ve known Valerie Ward. She’s a talented teacher of many levels and ages at the Hideout where she also can be found being a talented director, performer, and (as is a theme for our show) an all around wonderful person.
We talked with Valerie about the variety of things she’s involved with, from being co-owner of the delicious (and highly recommended) vegan ice cream parlor, Sweet Ritual, to touring the world with her long running troupe P-graph. We also discuss her experience improvising for 41 consecutive hours in the Hideout’s improv marathon, as well as the upcoming murder ballad inspired show she’ll be directer there, A Deed So Dark.
Through all this we were able to cover a number of facets of Valerie’s improv philosophy, and we can’t thank her enough for taking time to be on our show.
Her group P-graph can be seen performing every Friday at 10pm at the Hideout Theatre.
The featured song this episode is Two Dolphins by The Sea and Cake
