About the Instructor

tom muellerTom Mueller (Co-Creative Director) has been doing theatre since he was a little boy, when he played a pirate captain who had to walk the plank. His interest in improv goes back to the late 60s, when he was introduced to it at an Actors’ Workshop in Indianapolis. Even before doing improv, he was aware that what attracted him most to the theatre was the spirit of teamwork that the actors share. Improv encourages that teamwork even more than “legitimate” theatre. In the 80s, he attended workshops run by Paul Sills, the first director of Second City and the son of improv legend Viola Spolin. In 1989, he attended a TheatreSports workshop at the Santa Paula Theatre Centre. Out of that experience, he and his wife Sally and Gary Best and others formed Ventura Area TheateSports, which has now become the Ventura Improv Company.
