Hayley moved up to Wellington on a whim, after a five year OE left her feeling the need to find where she belonged. After taking a couple of WIT’s introductory classes, she reconnected with how much she had loved improv back in her high school days, and she found her place as well as a sort of a family in the community of WIT.
Hayley has been part of WIT’s recent Fringe and Comedy Festival shows, in 2014 Battle of WITs, and Return to the Planet of Forbidden Improv (for which she made some amazing props, including a four metre long tentacle), and in 2015 Gorilla; she has also performed in and hosted Micetro shows. In 2016 she produced and performed in Attack of the Killer-B Movie. She has a real love for improvised music and rhyme- if there’s the chance of a song, she’s in. Sometimes even in key.
She has served on WIT’s committee as Co-ordinator and as Members’ Rep. As a trainer she works with some of our newest improvisors, as she loves experiencing that moment where people take the lid off the box of improv, and really start playing with it.
