Charles St. CharlesWashington Improv Theater
Charles St. Charles lived lots of places before coming to DC, including Detroit, Los Angeles, Rome, and Paris. His improv obsession though blossomed here in the nation's capital.
Washington Improv Theater has been like a sixth home to him. Before joining Season Six, he performed for two years on the WIT Harold team Spirit Bear. Outside of WIT (sometimes within), Charles performs with independent teams Press Play, Teenage Hand Models, Mr. Meaner, and Improvisers and Other Actors. He has trained at WIT, the DC Improv, and Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre’s Training Center in NYC. He was in the first graduating class (2006) of the one year acting intensive at The Honors Conservatory at The Theater Lab School of the Dramatic Arts in DC, and he has performed scripted theater in DC, Virginia, and Maryland.
He is also a visual artist with a painting or two always on display at Touchstone Gallery. Charles loves improv best, believes improvisers are his inevitable brethren and sisteren, and frequently can be seen hugging them — just this side of the limits of propriety.
