Rebecca McGivney

Rebecca McGivney began studying improv at the Upright Citizens Brigade  (UCB) Theater in New York City in 2013. In addition to being a house team performer there- with her Lloyd team Kingship- she has played on numerous indie teams and taken an obscene number of classes in both improv and character work with fantastic instructors including Don Fanelli, Achilles Stamatelaky, James Dwyer, Natasha Vaynblat, and Jackie Jennings. Coming to improv with a background in theater and voice performance, she is a staunch believer in commitment to characters; while her interests in art history, radical theater, and performance art means she loves to see scenes get a little weird.


In 2020, she moved to Baltimore to pursue her MLIS in Library and Information Science and started taking classes at BIG in 2021 after missing improv (and just generally, missing people) during COVID. Currently, she can be seen performing with the Facilitators and Friends and with her indie team Melk.
