Spitfire Spotlight: Ashley Dudukovich
What's your day job?
Composer / Singer-Songwriter
Do you have any hobbies outside of improv?
Music, Acting, Reading & Rock Climbing
What drew you to improv?
I had been touring and writing music for 13+ years and decided to take a break in the Fall of 2018 and discover new hobbies.
What do you like to do most on stage?
I love connecting with people through humor, art, and music.
What makes a good scene in your opinion?
When all of your scene partners truly listen to each other and are committed to playing and having fun. It really translates well to both the audience and your fellow performers.
What's the most memorable moment you've had at Spitfire?
It was during my first short course class as I was trying to decide if I would sign up for the full semester. They went over failure and the importance of accepting it and having fun with it. I realized that learning to embrace failure was going to change my life as an artist and allowing myself to play again was what I really needed at the time.
