Teague M. Parker (He/Him) is an Actor, Playwright, Improviser, Producer, and Teaching Artist. After graduating from Western Washington University (WWU), he founded Come Up Productions (Come Ups), where he began freelance teaching his original Theatre technique, Improv for Wellness: a wellness & performance tool using Improvisation as groundworks to help people uncover their creativity, cultivate awareness & self-worth, and learn to love everything about their unique identity to authentically arrive in their everyday lives and/or performances.
Fusing his extensive acting education, thirteen years of Improv experience, nine years of teaching, and training with ArtsWa through the Teaching Artist Training lab, Teague’s work quickly took off.
Backed by his practical experience serving as both artistic & education director of WWU’s nationally recognized Improv team, The Dead Parrot Society, as well as his time as an ensemble member at Jet City Improv, Teague brought his Improv masterclasses to regional theaters such as Seattle Rep, Seattle Children’s Theatre, Village Theatre, and Jet City Improv. This work was soon shared with graduate students at the University of Florida, Theatre majors at WWU, heart-centered business conferences with Worth the Journey, and institutions such as the Museum of Pop Culture. Teague continues to share his class series & workshops through arts residencies with the drama, health, and English departments at schools such as Roosevelt & Everett High School, Open Window Middle School, Connections Homeschool, and Lakeside School.
Teague has performed around the country and internationally in plays such as “Topdog/Underdog” by Suzan-Lori Parks for the Teatro UNAM Festival in Mexico City, won the KCACTF Region VII Award for best full-length play, was ranked within the top three Improv teams at the College Improv Tournament national competition in Chicago, and is a part of the Teaching Artist Cohorts of Seattle Rep, Seattle Theatre Group, and Seattle Children’s Theatre. Uniting artist and audiences to form mindful communities, he believes creativity is everyone’s birthright, and that we all deserve to reclaim our self-worth.
