Bio

Thalyn has dedicated his life to the creation of inspirational theatre and the expressive arts. This gifted graduate from the Pacific Conservatory of the Performing Arts has rocked the professional theater stage for over 22 years. As a performing artist, Thalyn is a Jack-of-all- trades. From Shakespeare to Improv Comedy, Dance to BeatBoxing, Rock Opera to Slam Poetry (2 time champion)… You name it, he’s done it… and done it well! Thalyn has kept the Improv Comedy flame alive on Maui and Kauai for the past 19 years as the creator and artistic director for his professional comedy troupes The Pono Players and The InsPirates. All the while, inspiring 20 years worth of improv students to engage in the Art of Play. As an advocate for interactive entertainment, Thalyn has worked extensively with Peak Experience Productions as a performer, script writer, and emcee, co-creating large scale audience participatory performances for String Cheese Incident Festivals. As a playwright, he created and starred in two mythic-scale stage shows: the rock musical Message in a Bottle at KCC, and the multi-media dance fable Sekai at The Kilohana.
