Eve Smyth was born and raised in Seattle, then spent several years in San Francisco, before finding her West Coast equilibrium in Southern Oregon. After graduating with a degree in theater from San Francisco State University, Eve performed and toured with her own theater company throughout the Northwest. Eve taught and performed with BATS Improv and was the Director of their Young Audiences program, where she facilitated improvisation workshops and performances in schools throughout the Bay Area. As an emerging playwright, Eve received critical acclaim in Seattle and San Francisco for her solo show “What Big Teeth You Have! or Little Red Bites Back”. She has written and directed several productions for Ashland Children’s Theatre that she co-founded with Kate Sullivan at Oregon Stage Works in 2004. Eve currently teaches acting and improvisation at Ashland Children’s Theatre and is a member of the comedy improv troupe The Hamazons. Eve feels that many of the basic improv tenets, like saying “Yes, and…” can be basic life tenets as well. She is constantly mystified and grateful for the combined magic of theatre and children. Eve lives with her daughter, Aidan, who is a student at Ashland High School.
