"I just returned from my first opportunity to speak at an industry conference (IxDA's Interaction '11) and my talk is receiving some of the highest ratings of the conference. Thanks to improv, I had the poise and confidence to wow an audience and calmly respond to difficult questions. This wouldn't have been possible without the skills I continue to develop with my work at Unexpected Productions." -- Cheryl Platz (UP Ensemble) User Experience Designer, Microsoft Ensemble, Unexpected Productions
"Our group had a great time laughing and team-building at our Unexpected Productions event. Every team member had fun. I would highly recommend it as an event to other groups and companies! Thanks for making our morale event such a success." -- Tara Hopwood Microsoft Office Software Development
"I use UP's tenets of improv every day when interacting with my patients and staff.

"Unexpected Productions provides a welcome outlet. Improv reinforces my ability to think on my feet and stay responsive, whether I'm responding to judges in court or engaging in active listening while meeting with clients. Improv is also a natural complement to trial work. Taking a case to trial involves bringing a story to life... and improv is about telling stories!"
-Andrea King Robertson, (UP Attorney at Law Ensemble, Unexpected Productions
