About the director:
Gary’s mentor and teacher was Viola Spolin, known as the mother of Improvisation. In the 1950’s, she and her son Paul Sills created the first improv group in the United States (the Compass) that later became Chicago’s famed Second City. Gary began his association with Ms. Spolin in 1977 and has taught Spolin Games techniques to various groups and companies around the world. He is co-founder and director of The Spolin Players, a group of established actors (including Dan Castelanetta, the voice of Homer Simpson) performing Improv in Los Angeles since 1988. He directed The Spolin Players Northwest, a second incarnation of the successful LA production. They performed regularly in Seattle from 2001-2005.
“Gary Schwartz is a gifted player and coach. He has a thorough understanding of my work.”- Viola Spolin

“Gary Schwartz was very close to Viola for years and one of her best students. I’ve had him in several workshops now and find he’s the best side coach around, including me.” – Paul Sills
