ABOUT MOLLY

Who is Miss Molly Martin??

Molly Martin has been performing and teaching Improv Comedy and Drama for over 15 years. She has a BFA in Acting from the University of Montana and a MA in Theatre Education from Emerson College. Molly got her first internship at the Actors Theatre of Nantucket and was given two special opportunities that changed her life. She taught and founded the Nantucket Improv Group that is still active today and she started directing Children’s Theatre on the island. This is how Miss Molly developed a love and passion for youth theatre! Molly then went on to study Improv at Improv Olympic with Jack McBrayer (30 Rock), Susan Messing (Second City), Charna Halpern (founder of IO), Bob Dassie and TJ Jagodowski. She has also studied with John Lutz (SNL, 30 Rock, Parks & Rec), Christina Gausas (Conan O’Brien), the late Jason Chin and Noah Gregoropoulos (IO). Since Molly was having so much fun, she then did some MORE workshops at Second City and Improv Asylum in Boston. Molly taught at Watertown Children’s Theatre, Boston Children’s Theatre, North Shore Music Theatre and the Chicago Center for the Performing Arts and taught Improv to kids and adults at Theatre Workshop of Nantucket for three seasons. This past year, she was Associate Producer on John Shea’s movie “Grey Lady”, an acting coach for two ten-year old actresses on the short film “The Quantified Self”, Associate Producer on the independent film, “Welcome Home”, Stage Manager for Boston Children’s Theatre’s production of “Stuart Little” and taught a playwriting class to 35 special needs students at Boston English High School. Molly is so excited to be running her “Miss Molly’s Improv Theatre Summer Camp” for the second season!
