(she/her)Washington Improv Theater
Julia Rocchi is the first person in her family to get involved with improv, and due to relatives' confusion/anger about their word not being used as the show's suggestion, she will likely be the last.
A graduate of the WIT curriculum, Julia was a founding member of long-running, ever-smiling indie troupe Cake Bagel (long live complex carbohydrates!). She now performs with the improvised murder mystery ensemble Citizens’ Watch, where she once killed a character with a wine key; and with the experimental troupe IRL, which mines real life for its inherent humor.
Julia’s first artistic love is creative writing, so when not lost in calendar management, she is drafting, revising, and aiming to reach 100 rejections by the end of the year. True to her Italian-American roots, she takes every available opportunity to buy people’s affection with home-cooked meals.
