Jen Shepard  has been improvising for 26 years.  She trained and performed in Chicago at iO, The Annoyance and The Playground Theatre.  In 2004, she and Larrance Fingerhut opened ImprovAcadia.  The Bar Harbor based theater developed a huge following and welcomed improvisers from iO, The Second City, UCB, The PIT and Westside Comedy.  Currently, she serves as the Executive Director of PTC. Improvisation is the art of letting go of fear and judgment and embracing collaboration and agreement. Jen will be teaching improv acting!
