Just Say Yes

BY MAVIS MCRAE
@ VOL 15 ON SEP 12, 2013

When Mavis McRae quit her government job in favor of freelance work, she knew she had to be open to new experiences and opportunities in order to be successful. Her willingness and flexibilty allowed her to travel around the world, teaching marketing and business in China, the Phillipines, and Vietnam. In the words of Ashton Kutcher, "opportunity looks a lot like hard work, while luck looks like stepping out of your comfort zone."

Random Slides Improv

BY ANDY SAWYER
@ VOL 12 ON APR 19, 2018

Andy Sawyer is a set designer, inventor, maker, fine art photographer, innkeeper, outdoorsman, teacher, artist, tree-hugging dirt worshiper, and an improvisational comedian. He began his improv comedy career over 30 years ago, using humor as a tool for teaching environmental science at Stone Environmental School in Portland, Maine. After moving back to the Twin Cities to woo and eventually marry the one true love of his life, Nita Nicholie, the two collaborated to help establish the “Calling all Colors” program. Andy again applied improv comedy to this program, using it as a tool for children to begin dialogue on issues of race, stereotyping, and skin color. He next began working with Mike Nadolski at Bridges Theater in Benton Harbor as an ensemble member of the production of “No Waiting in the Loitering Room”, and a community literature-based show based on The Giver by Lois Lowry. Smarty Pants improv was his next stop, where along with his wife Nita, Joey and Jason Greene and Mike Nadolski he performed a weekly family friendly improv show at The Livery in Benton Harbor for close to 2 years. He is a founding member of TORP, and has performed in numerous local murder mysteries and corporate video productions. In an emergency, he can honestly say, “I am not a doctor, but I played one on TV.” He and his wife have raised 23 children over the past 24 years and they have found that the fundamental principle of improv, “Yes, And”, can also be a way of life.
