Chris Dewey got his start in theater with an after-school improv class in fifth grade. Through high school and beyond college he did scripted theater, and has worked with Role Players Ensemble in Danville, Woodminster Summer Musicals in Oakland and Livermore Shakespeare Festival, as well as some behind-the-scenes work at Town Hall Theatre here in Lafayette. The past few years he has returned to improv, and is very excited to be exploring the limits of the art form with such a fantastic team of artists.
Lynn’s love for comedy dates back to the days of watching The Dick Van Dyke Show, Carol Burnett and, of course, Saturday Night Live. Although she flirted with the idea of becoming a sketch-comedy writer ala SNL, Lynn ultimately chose a career as a clinical psychologist—a career which she has enjoyed for over twenty years. Working in this field provides a lot of inspiration for her character work—both comedic and serious. Lynn started her formal training in improv at the Pan Theater in Oakland where she, together with several of her fellow improv students, formed the short form troupe Ace of Hobos with whom she still performs on a regular basis. In October of 2013, Lynn was delighted to attend a Synergy Theater production (Z is for Zombies) and knew immediately she wanted to be part of what they were doing.
