Workshops and Sharing held at Woodford Theatre

Roger Ainslie – 2018, Roger Ainslie is an experienced improviser and actor, having studied improv at the world-famous Second City Conservatory (whose alumni include Tina Fey, Steve Carell, and Jordan Peele, among many others).  Although he has extensive experience as a professional actor, with a career that has ranged from Shakespeare to long-form improvisation to television (you may have seen him on an episode of Nickelodeon’s old hit show iCarly), his favorite thing to do is to teach!  He has coached and taught acting and improvisation to teens in both Los Angeles and NYC at private conservatories. He currently teaches improv, voice, and acting at Rowan University and Muhlenberg College.

Taylor Coriell – A redhead who hails from Kentucky, Taylor Coriell is a New York-based actor, writer, and award-winning filmmaker. She is a two-time finalist for the Sundance/YouTube New Voices Lab for her digital series, You’re The Pest and Coming For You. The first season of You’re The Pest received a spot in BVEW’s Kickstart Diversity incubator and is currently making a successful run of the international festival circuit. Taylor’s recent directing projects include Step Into My Office, Run Ins, and the short film, Til Death Do Us Part. Her recent writing/producing projects are You’re The Pest, Redheads Anonymous, Adulting With Jane, A White Guy Grows In Brooklyn, Super Girl Gang Turbo Squad 5000, and We Will All Be Dead Soon. She is currently singing, dancing, and papering as Pam/Erin in the Off-Broadway hit The Office! A Musical Parody in NYC. Taylor drinks a lot of coffee.
