Workshops and coaching for a variety of improvisation and performance skills.
TROY A. MILLER has been teaching and performing improv since 2002, beginning as an original company member at The Hideout Theatre (Austin, TX). Since then, he’s specialized in producing and directing improvised genre narratives, including the critically acclaimed shows “Hitchcocked!” and “Start Trekkin” (selected to perform at the 40th “Star Trek” Anniversary in Las Vegas), and audience favorites “A Penny Dreadful” (gothic horror) and “Scene of the Crime” (murder mystery). His comedy troupe “Confidence Men” (improvised David Mamet) is a two-time winner of the B. Iden Payne Award for Best Improvisational Theatre (Austin’s version of the Tony’s) and has toured comedy festivals nationwide (including Seattle, Twin Cities, Providence, Kansas City, Vancouver, Boston and New York). He also performs with renowned comedy groups “Brain Trust,” “Danger! Warning! Improv!” and “Junk.” Currently, he tours comedy clubs across Los Angeles with his troupe “Shell Company”.
When not improvising, Troy is an accomplished screenwriter and filmmaker — his feature comedy “Severance” toured film festivals in 2005-2006, and his thriller script “The Hitch” won the 2013 Austin Film Festival and was optioned by Frank Darabont (writer/director of “The Shawshank Redemption”, creator of “The Walking Dead”).
