Angela got her start on the comedy circuit as a twelve year old when she performed one-girl variety shows for her family. She showed multiple talents by lip-synching to Captain and Tennille's "Love Will Keep Us Together" and by reenacting cat food commercials. Today, when not singing around the house, she volunteers on the Silent Echo Theater Company board, and visits the beach whenever she can.
She appeared in 'School for Scandal at Cascades Theatre in 2015 and in "Now You're Talking" at the Belfry in 2016.
From her pioneer roots, Carolyn sought out a path that meandered. She came to Central Oregon to “regroup”, to stay a few months, but that was 30 years ago. Discovering improv, she got hooked, preferring to view life as “yes, and”…
From teaching English to refugees, to trying to teach anything to middle school darlings, she also reverts to making art images because the exploration is endless. Travel with her boomer backpacker hubby and her friends fill her meandering wishes.
Judi credits her skills as a performer to her past life as a fourth grade teacher where she always had a "captive audience". When she joined Triage 13 years ago Judi was thrilled to find an appropriate outlet for her tendencies towards over-dramatization and exaggeration. Judi loves Improv and is already making plans for a "long-form" funeral. In addition to her work with Triage, Judi appeared in many Buckboard Murder Mystery shows and has recently had roles in several Community Theater productions including Love, Loss and What I wore, and The Rustle of Wings. When not annoying her friends and family, Judi volunteers with "challenged" (and familiar) youth and lives the good life of a Tumalonian.
Lisa has been in love with performing arts since she was a youngster. She appeared in several high school plays--often in the background. After taking time off to earn a Bachelor's degree in Criminology and get married, she returned to the stage. She has participated in Sisters community theatre groups since the 1980's and in a CTC production of "Oliver." She started taking improv classes from Michelle Johnson and has not looked back. "I love the goofiness and the chance to perform."
She acted and directed in one of the segments of the one-act extravaganza, "Now You're talking" at the Belfry in 2016.

As an owner of Strictly Organic Coffee Roaster and Café in Bend, Rhonda needs the fun and freedom of improvisation to keep her sanity – after all where else can you regularly use your jet pack and your Kalashnikov? She has been the director of Triage since 2006.
Other interests include sitting on the Community Advisory Board of KPOV, High Desert Community Radio, playing Mahjong and writing a musical with her triple threat husband, Richard.
Peter stumbled into improv comedy 11 years ago in a class where he often fell flat. He has been tripping through classes and performances, breaking through personal barriers (and doors), crashing into scenes and creating characters who can’t carry a tune with both hands ever since.
When he is not busting stuff, Peter works at Abilitree as the Human Resource Director, helping individuals with disabilities mend their lives and careers.
Mike is a founding member of Triage. If he looks or sounds familiar, it’s because he’s everywhere—COTV Sports Play-by-play announcer, KPOV’s syndicated, “Ultimate Oldies Show,” local TV commercials and theater productions, including CTC’s 2016 “It’s a Wonderful Life,” where he provided sound effects, including crying babies and sirens, as the Foley artist. To round it all off, he’s also a great DJ and dance teacher!
