Trenton James Krummenacher: Instructor

IMPROVISATION


Trent is originally from Williams, Arizona. After graduating from Ricks college he moved to Salt Lake City to pursue his career as an actor, artist, and comedian. 

Upon arriving in the Great Salt Lake Valley, he fell in with an improv troupe called Skinny Lincolns, run and managed by the infamously talented Lincoln Hoppe. It was here he met his partner in improv comedy Christopher Robin Miller, and received his training in improvisational comedy, learning and drilling the basics of improv with talented actors and comedians alike. 

He has performed as an actor all over the state, including; The Wiseguys Comedy Cafe, The Comedy Circuit, The world famous Desert Star, and the Hale Center Theater in West Valley, but his true love is making up scenes and improvisational comedy on the spot. Any given weekend you can catch him doing improv comedy on the Comedy Sportz stage on Center Street in Provo UT. 

His favorite improv games are ones that include singing and telling stories to delight audiences. He met his beautiful wife Jennifer here in Utah, and together they are trying their best to raise their three lovely daughters, Eva, Vivian, and Charlotte. 


He is an accomplished on-camera talent with many credits as well. Ask him about it and watch him squirm.

HERE'S WHAT INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS 

SAY ABOUT CHRISTOPHER ROBIN MILLER AND HIS WORKSHOPS!


"I have studied with top acting coaches all over the country. Heck, when Jessica Chastain was yer best friend ya had to. I have to admit I think Christopher Robin Miller is hands-down my favorite. His scene study classes are really fun if you do the work. And his private coaching sessions are killer. My bookings proved it. Saying that... His Private Voice Over Master Class is unmatched. I am a natural VO artist simply because of shear vocal phone-sex genetics (giggle). But he is next level genius. Investing in your craft is important. Just like with headshots... Do it right the first time.

He put together my demo for me and I think it is pretty darn fantastic. So worth the price!! Actually, I don't think he charges enough!! I wish he was in LA!!!"

HISTORY of the P.A.C.

 

The P.A.C. was established in 1994 by Scott Ditty, an actor with many years of training and experience in professional film, television and theatre.
He came to Utah after seven years of study at the Beverly Hills Playhouse with the legendary acting teacher and director Milton Katselas, and award winning actor Jeffrey Tambor Mr. Ditty brought his talent and skill to Salt Lake City where he found a great need and hunger for training specific to those whose desires and goals were to enter the professional arena of film, television and theatre.  It was then that he introduced a 3 - pronged approach; Acting Technique, Career Administration and Attitude of the Artist. 

This approach was introduced to train local actors with the same rigorous and effective method that he was the benefactor of during his years at the BHP.  The result was nothing less than astounding!  Actor after actor who entered the PAC classes were soon finding themselves signing with representation,  auditioning for  and booking network television shows and roles in major features being filmed locally, as well as countless local films and television productions.  Over the next five years, the PAC offered extensive training in beginning and advanced scene study for adults, teens and children.  Specific workshops were offered for commercial acting, voice acting, relaxation for the actor and career administration.    

It was also at this time that a group of very talented and motivated actors formed the Theatre Group “Salt City Productions” from the ranks of the advanced adult scene study classes. Scott had the great honor of directing their debut production of “The Odd Couple (female version)”, which was also the inaugural theatrical production at the Rose Wagner Performing Art Center. That production starred then PAC student and current PAC Director Christopher Miller, whose performance was truly a highlight of the production.  Off the success of that production, Salt City Productions continued to produce theatre and is now known as “Pygmalion Productions”, one of the top semi-professional theatre companies in Utah.

 

In late 1998 Scott returned to Los Angeles where he continued to work in film, direct theatre, dabble in producing television and resumed his training at the BHP.  In recent years, due to his devotion to family and his passion for education and athletic competition, he has chosen to pursue his other loves of teaching and coaching.  He has recently returned to Utah and is teaching Film Studies at Alta High School, coaching football and yes….. always has irons in the creative fire!
His resume includes but is not limited to such films as Con Air, The Rocketeer, Last Resort and Just in Time to name a few.  Television credits include Murphy Brown, Quantum Leap, Touched by an Angel and Promised Land and he has appeared in several Network Movies of the Week such as Before he Wakes, In the Blink of an Eye and The Ticket. Some highlights of his stage performances are playing “Bernardo” in West Side Story and “Snoopy” in You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown.

 In 2018, the P.A.C. continues to evolve and grow under the direction of Mr. Miller as the source for professional artistic and career development.
