Check out musical improv resources here:

Annie Harris is a multi-disciplinary queer and neurodivergent artist. She is originally from Wales and trained in Musical Theatre at the London College of Music. While auditioning for the perfect West End role, she fell in love with comedy and improvisation, and left her former dangerous lover behind to fall straight into the arms of the latter. She regularly performs on the cabaret and comedy circuit, and has produced and created three shows for the Fringe circuit – Sh!t Scripts (Bad Manors), Warrior, a tragicomedy about living with disability, and an adaptation of Earwig by Fraser McFarlane. She presents the improv podcast Contrived and Insufferable alongside her partner Sam Rae, and improvises with narrative quest improv troupe The Parentheticals. Annie has also had a career in theatre, film and musicals, namely Saucy Jack and the Space Vixens (Soho and Clapham), Southern Fail! The Musical (Spiegeltent), The Big Bite-Size Breakfast Show (The Pleasance), Tess of the D’Urbervilles (The Park Theatre), and Cinderella (Walt Disney) directed by Kenneth Branagh.
