First Improv Show

Show: Nov. 21


The Running With Scissors improv team, featuring the senior captains Charlie Huff, Doug Browne, Robson and 18 other members, will host the first performance at the end of November. The performance will include games played by the team members and audience involvement for scene prompts. Admission is $5 and tickets will be sold at the door and lunches the week of the show. 

Performance Showcase

Show: Dec. 4.


For students wanting to show off their theatre skills, the performance showcase, similar to a talent show, will be held in the theatre and coordinated by theatre director Amie Gossett and Silverberg. Unlike an actual talent show, events in the showcase can only be musical numbers from plays, monologues, choreography, group scenes and theatre related performances. Students interested in being in the showcase should contact Silverberg at [email protected]

If any students are interested or would like more information on any of the events, they should contact Gossett at [email protected]
