BIG’s 12th season saw the end of our tenure at the Mercury Theater and a wildly successful season of hilarious performances, awesome classes, outreach with kids and adults in our communities, and the joy of spreading improv to Baltimore and beyond. As we get ready to join our teen years, we couldn’t be more excited for some BIG, exciting changes.
The Baltimore Improv Group is excited to announce the appointment of Terry Withers as the Managing Director of the Baltimore Improv Group. Terry brings a dynamic background which we feel will be a tremendous asset to the organization as we work to enhance the quality of, participation in, and appreciation for improvised theatre in the Baltimore region.
Over the last decade Terry has been an avid student, performer, teacher and senior employee for the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in New York City. He began his professional relationship with UCB seven years ago as a Booking Agent eventually serving as the institution’s Director of Sales. In this role he built and led a team of ten sales professionals, substantially increasing multiple revenue streams. While leading his department Terry also served as a UCB Training Center Teacher and UCB Performer. Prior to his work at UCB, Terry worked in both fundraising and sales for a diverse range of companies including The Manhattan Theatre Club and The New York Times. You will certainly be meeting Terry in the coming weeks and we welcome him to Baltimore and our improv community with wide open arms! Terry joins the BIG Leadership team of Mike Harris, Artistic Director, and Bridget Cavaiola, Education Director.
We are also thrilled to announce our new residency at Single Carrot Theatre in Remington! BIG is partnering with the 10 year old, innovative theater company, to share their space and continue to promote and grow the theater community along the Howard St corridor. Look for announcements soon regarding our first shows in our new space and a special kick off weekend in October!
