Emily Dalton

Like many Millennials, Emily discovered her love of improv by watching "Whose Line Is It Anyway" and committing "Monty Python & the Holy Grail" to memory.

Emily has been an actor, director, and improviser since her middle school days, and she received a BFA in Theatre Performance at Virginia Commonwealth University. After training with the Bent Improv Theatre of Charlottesville, VA, Emily sharpened her teeth in NYC for nine years where she mostly wrote, directed, and performed in new plays (including two self-written comedy solo shows with the Peoples Improv Theatre).

She has studied with Shakespeare & Company in Lenox, MA, which really paid off because now she’s a Professional Nerd™ with the Maryland Renaissance Festival where she gets to improvise classical speech all day in a corset. With WIT, she has played in FIST, studied the art of the Improvised Play with HM Vitale, and is a rotating cast member of And, Scene!.

She loves horror movies. Shes a Baptist Pastor’s Kid. She named my cat Beatrix Kiddo after the Bride in “Kill Bill”. She has a habit of analyzing movies out loud in real time, so movie night with me has been aptly named “Getting the Emily Cut.”
