Demy Potter

Early Elementary and Youth Improv Teacher

From acting in her first play, A Doll’s House, to playing Wendy in her high school’s production of Peter Pan, Demy has always had a passion for performing. She graduated the University of Kansas with a Theatre degree and earned her Master’s degree in performance from Columbia College Chicago. While in Chicago she also completed the improv and sketch writing programs at iO and Second City. Since moving to Grand Rapids, she has been lucky enough to teach theater classes at various locations such as Grand Rapids Community College, Artists Creating Together and now Civic Theater! Her local theater credits include Cherie (Bus Stop), Dutch Wife (Sleepy Hollow: A Musical Tale) and Tragedian (Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead).  She most recently accepted a role on The Comedy Project Revue cast.
