Improv is Served!
Dinner At explores the relationships between three couples who we first see enjoying dinner together discussing a topic suggested by our audience. We then see each couple driving home, doing what all couples do when they drive home, gossiping about the other two couples. Finally, we see a montage of swiped scenes within the world created by the three couples, with a heavy emphasis on relationship driven scene work.
Casey Stelman was born and raised in Northern Minnesota where the sun typically does not shine. During hibernation, Casey found a love for ice hockey and creating imaginary characters to play with as a child to pass the time which is where her love for comedy further developed into a snarky, dark sense of humor. She currently resides in the Denver area and is in the financial services industry, which fuels a necessity for a creative outlet such as improv.
Guido started his improv journey attending drop in classes at the Voodoo School of Improv. After a few months, he enrolled in the 8 week level one class they offered. A year later, he had completed all 5 levels. His graduating class formed the group Conquerer and had an 8 week run. Midway through my Voodoo training, Guido joined the Parker Players Improv Theater Program. Upon completion he became a House Team member of the Parker Players and has performed two shows with them most recently for Parker Art’s Comedy and Cocktails. In his spare time he plays with the group Fluffy Puppies and Peanut Butter Fun when they host Voodoo’s Camp Improv Utopia.

Upon returning to Parker, after two years away from the stage, he is back in the game with a troupe that he had found on the interweb. Life is a stage and he intends to take it.
