Rob Yoho is a B. Iden Payne Award-nominated theatre artist and educator based in Austin, TX. He is originally from Cocoa Beach, FL (which explains why he lives in Austin now). He earned a Master of Fine Arts in Directing from Baylor University, and has previously worked with the New York Musical Festival, Missoula Children’s Theatre, Orlando Shakespeare Theater, Empty Spaces Theatre Company, and Rake Theatre. He is also a proud alum of Rollins College in Winter Park, FL.
Currently, he serves as an Improv Instructor at The Hideout Theatre, Austin's longest-running improv theatre and comedy venue. Locally, he improvises with AJAR, Heavens Mr. Darcy, and Fish Suitcase. He helped create the improvised Greek tragedy It’s All Greek to Me, assistant directed I’ll Take the Physical Challenge at The Hideout Theatre, and is the director of The Kindness of Strangers: Improvised Tennessee Williams Plays, which premiered at The Hideout in July of 2017.
Rob is also an accomplished scripted theatre director, with credits including True West, Goldfish, Dinner with Friends, The Wedding Singer: The Musical, and Annie. With Austin's American Berserk Theatre, Rob directed the B. Iden Payne Award nominated Subject to Control, and the sold-out run of For Time & Eternity: The Secret History of Mormonism's Elect Lady and her Sister Wives.
When he isn't making art, Rob is probably bouldering, reading reeealllllyyy nerdy books, or playing ridiculous video games.
