Jonathan Pitts, Executive Producer, Chicago Improv Foundation:

On behalf of myself, CIF Artistic Director Mark Sutton, and the CIF Board of Directors I’d like to welcome you all and thank you all for becoming CIF Artistic Associates. You live in 17 cities and 7 countries and you are among the finest and most accomplished improvisational theatre artists of this generation. I am very excited about the growth for CIF that your involvement shows, as well as the growth for the art of improvisation that you and your work represent. As we move forward through this next year, I hope your association with CIF, and with each other, will make for advancements of ideas and partnerships in the art of improvisational theatre.

I am proud to raise the profile of DSI and our local company.

DSI takes the study and performance of improvisation very seriously, and we will constantly work to elevate the artform. Our mission has always been to explore the work, educate audiences, and support the improv community. Partnerships such as this one help our Company reach those goals.

There is, but it's in all caps and with a lot of exclamation points. It's very easy to miss.

wow that's great. It actually gave me chills reading it. It reminded me of Harry Potter somehow. That would make Johnathan Pitts Dumbledore, I guess? Hmm. . .

This is a huge honor and I am humbled to be on that list. I am so grateful to all the people I've met who have inspired me and helped me grow, especially those of you at DSI. I'm a fan of you all.
