EnWhat The MaD JaCKRaTS say about how their experience at LPN Studios has drawn them to form and commit to this monthly show ter Text{}{}{}{}{}{}

{}“LPNSImprov has taught me to think on my feet. That voice in my head that used to say, “no” is gone!”  

-Christina Orloff

“Being in LPNSImprov has taught me to use what I was borne with and develop that. Sometimes your natural quirkiness

can become your niche.”

-Jeremy Howard

“The LPNSImprov made me confident that I can be sharp, witty, and funny! And my commercial booking rate has skyrocketed since I started!  It's simply addicting. LPN Improv: My anti-drug.” 

-Micky Shiloah

“LPNSImprov has given me the freedom to experiment. Any character I can think of, I now have the tools to make it happen!”

-Kuali’i Wittman

"LPN’s teaching methods are truly one of a kind. There’s no limit to what you can learn from her, and, of course her signature improv format"

-Susana Woo

“LPNS form of Improv has given me freedom to create and live in any situation without second guessing myself. I love being able to walk into an audition and not have to worry about the lines or playing a character.... I can just BE the character.”

-Michael Franklin

“I always believed improv was something I'd never be able to grapple. After studying with Lauren, I became confident, quick thinking, and some might even say funny.  Her improv technique has helped me in countless auditions and has been a great source for some pretty crazy situations and characters.” 

-Chadwick Armstrong

“Lauren's improv has been a master class on making strong character choices that are well-defined and well-executed. Reluctant to play outside of my persona in the past, I've evolved through this improv to understand the value of genuine point of view and how for both comedy and acting it is central to the work.”

- Reza Breakstone

"LPNSImprov really pushes you to justify your choices! You'll make mistakes, but in this super long-form improv style, you're always pushed to get back in the story and make it right!"

- Matthew Helfer




"I had a great time at the show, honestly I was a tad worried for it being a FIRST time, how would it go? But from the time the lights went out and music started and then with the burst of energy from the cast entering the stage, the room was instantly electrified and infected with smiles. This was a group of very well trained and SMART kids, who made me laugh. I was impressed by their individual skill sets and the myriad of characters that came to life that night. It was a great time, great show, I WILL be back!"                                                                                               

- Danielle Lenniger, Luber Roklin Entertainment

“I’ve got to say, it was a great cast. They all did a wonderful job. Incredibly creative performances!!”

 - Lisa Boore Lambert, Bruised Reed Productions, LLC

Every time it's better than the time before. My mind is always totally blown, I need a cleaning crew in there because my mind is all over the place. I would compare it to an orgy, because everyone is just having a good time and it gets messy sometimes.”                                                                                                            

- Steven Mangurten - Cinematographer/Actor

“Oh my lord, we all loved it!!! Sunbrella, Taylor Swift, the shiny llama/alpaca, ALL OF IT!!So happy we finally made it and will most definitely be looking forward to another show!”

"I don't know how it's possible but every show is just as funny as, if not funnier than, the last show. Come for the amazing humor of the performers, stay for the camaraderie of everyone involved, including first time audience members to people there every show.  On a scale of 1 to 50, I rate it 150. The addition of Kyle is perfect! The MaD JaCKRaTS are all top-notch.”

-Heather Aitken

*What People are saying about the shows:*

“The actors inhabited such strong and well-defined characters. Improv is hard, really hard. It requires thinking on your feet and keeping a lean towards comedy, all while fleshing out convincing and endearing characters that an audience can believe. It’s bloody tough. With this particular show, I would like to point out that the actors were seamless in their transitions, and that the fun and consistency they brought to the scenes made the whole ride engrossing.” - Tim Byer at Hollywood 360 Click for full article

"Each segment so funny it was impossible for us to pick our favorite. We surely were impressed by their craft and walked away still talking about their work the whole ride home." - Essence LA
