Kristina Hayes 


Ticket-Taker Tina


"The magic show was amazing and it felt like a comedy show, too! Ticket-Taker-Tina was the perfect side-kick keeping the kids and the adults laughing the whole time."

--Liz Donovan (Ethan's mom)

Check out Ticket-Taker-Tina with Conductor Mike! 


Kristina is thrilled to be back in action with her old buddy, Michael Cornacchia as the sidekick to his Conductor Mike. When the "stay-at-home" order was issued in LA and Ready, Set, Improv LA had to cancel their classes, Kristina watched Michael do a Zoom birthday party for a friend's child in England and she knew they needed to get the Zoom Party Train on its tracks for kids in quarantine. She believes a magic show with Ticket-Taker-Tina and Conductor Mike is the next best thing to having an in-person party with friends and family and even better in that anyone in the world can attend. (And she believes in magic!)

Kristina's theatrical career spans 2 decades and your kids may have seen her on Disney shows like "Bunk'd" and "Wizards of Waverly Place" or Nickelodeon's "Instant Mom." She reoccured with a few original wacky characters on Comedy Central's "Reno 911" and over the years has starred in TV pilots for Fox, CBS, ABC and guest starred in dozens of shows like "Marlin" (NBC), "Castle" (ABC), "Bones" (Fox) and starred as Cameron Dallas's mom in one of the most downloaded movies of all time, "Expelled" (on Netflix).

In addition, she heads Ready, Set, Improv LA (an emerging improv program for kids of all ages at Oh My Ribs! theater in Hollywood) with Michael (Conductor Mike) and has studied, performed and taught improv in LA since 1995.
