This month’s Side Coach is extra special because we are asking for your help to support the organization Re-Book It by bringing used books for donation! Re-Book It ( is a super cool community service provided by The Last Bookstore that takes used books and raises funds for local libraries, charities, hospitals and schools. Please bring any used books, CDs, LPs, and DVDs you're looking to get rid of! 

And if that wasn't exciting enough, this month's side coach is Oscar Montoya!! (PONY, Benetton, The Score)

INSANE KOALAS – Jason Friedman, Angel Izard, Lauren Mendoza, Kirk Landsman, Andy Morrison, Gabriel Orendain-Necochea

BONESAW – Lani Engstrom, Jeff Taylor, Amelia Alvarez, Lindsey Robertson, Caro Brooks, Katherine Winslow, Shug Cvitanic


Ever watched an improv scene that could have been 100 times better with just one little adjustment? We all have, and that's where the Side Coach comes in. At every show, we ask a different UCB teacher or coach to sit on stage and give notes - while the show is going on!

The side coaching might be as simple as "make a stronger choice" or "say yes to this offering", or could be a more elaborate description of what's not working in the scene. The audience laughs, the team on stage gets their minds blown, and the coach gets a nice ego stroke. Everyone wins!
