ImprovHub is a community-oriented organization. We offer programs for all ages and all backgrounds all year long at moderate prices. We are filling a gap in arts education as schools, government agencies and foundations cut back on supporting cultural activities.
ImprovHub is a family-owned business founded by
Lorrie and Fritz Rumpel. (They are the two people at the left of the picture performing in an improv choir at Hard Hearted Hannah's Playhouse.) They have produced and performed in plays and improv shows in the Savannah area since 2004.
Lorrie Rumpel , ImprovHub's director, began directing theater as a young teenager. She studied theater and dance at the University of Houston and the University of Georgia, acted professionally in regional theater, and has been the artistic director of several theaters in Savannah. Lorrie has taught the Meisner acting technique to professional performers, and directed improv classes at her church and for a residential facility for homeless families. She is also a professional therapist specializing in trauma focused-cognitive behavioral therapy.
Fritz Rumpel, ImprovHub's manager, has produced the docudrama "Forty Acres and a Mule" and a variety of theatrical productions. He is also a writer, currently working on a book about the historic meeting of 20 men of God with Secretary of War Edwin Stanton and General William T. Sherman on January 12, 1865 in Savannah.
The Rumpels are indebted to Scoggins and Sheila Berg, who introduced Fritz and Lorrie to the art form known as improvisation, worked in scores of improv shows with them, and continue to support their efforts; to their pastors, Jovan and Jennifer Timmon, who offered them the space at their church to provide improv classes; and to their grandchildren, who are some of the best improv students ever!
