Daniel DeWalt – Improviser/teacher/theatre innovator

This is our second interview with the fabulous Daniel DeWalt of Covered Bridge Studios and Theaters in the Chicago area. He has recently created a series of FREE Master Level Improv Sessions with their newest enterprise, Generations On The Bridge Improv Playground.  Combining the talents of children, teens, and adults who have graduated from their conservatory Comedy & Drama Improv Program in a single group, this promises to be something quite unique.  Daniel, along with other professional instructors, is emphasizing advanced improv concepts and they will be opening these sessions soon to graduate-level improv students from all over the country. For more information about these exciting masterclasses and other projects at Covered Bridge, contact Daniel at MycoveredBridge@aol.com

I’ve directed and produced over 130 plays, hundreds of improv shows, dozens of films and have taught over 3,000 students the art and craft of improv as well as a wide variety of acting and writing disciplines. I am most happy within my life and work with my son, Jonathan DeWalt, and his successes with his wife, Allison Bosma.  Together they have been writing and producing teams at all the major studios in Hollywood and have worked on a number of sitcoms as well as their work in films.  BUT, the number one star in the mix is the beautiful granddaughter they have given my wife, Cindy, and I – Iris DeWalt.
