About the Instructor:

Michael “Donut” Donato studies theatre at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, and has been involved in Oahu’s theatre scene for several years. Donut believes that fulfilling improv comes from a place of connection and building between players, and that there is always something new to explore and discover, no matter how much experience one may have.

For the last ten years, improv has been a passion for Donut; taking in lessons and direction from various schools and ideas of improv thought (both on island and off), he applies a flexible and open improv philosophy to both his roles as a player and a coach.
