Improvisational Comedy and One Act Plays


Are you good at making people laugh?  Do you think quickly?  Do you like being silly?  Are you a fan of the tv show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?”  If you said yes to any of these questions, Improvisational Comedy Shorts is the activity for you!  We’ll learn 6-8 really cool games and present them to an audience.  You’ll laugh until milk comes out of your nose, or your frowns will be cheerfully refunded!  This activity rehearses at Badger Ridge, but there is a bus that takes Savanna Oaks students to BRMS!

Rehearsals: Tuesdays and Thursdays starting September 19th from 3:45-5:30 pm Performances: Tuesday, October 10th during the day and evening (you will need to be at BRMS at 6:00 that night for the 7:00 show, the show will end at 8:45, we will have a cast only cast party until 9:30 pm)



This is a series of four one act plays.  Every student who auditions will be cast in one show.  Three shows rehearse at Badger Ridge.  One show rehearses at Savanna Oaks.  You may audition for any show!  Transportation will be provided.

The Monday night show will rehearse at SOMS.  It will be the comedy “This Is A Test”. The main character is stressing out about the final exam - they can’t remember anything, they didn’t get the review sheets, everyone else is cheating and the essay question is in Chinese! This show takes a look at stress in a funny way.

The Tuesday night show will rehearse at BRMS.  It will be the Shakespearean comedy “Much Ado About Nothing.” This is a humorous look at relationships - both good and evil. It also features four bumbling officers of the law who somehow stumble upon the truth to setting everything right. Don’t be afraid of the language - this show is super fun!

The Wednesday night show will rehearse at BRMS.  “The Winter of 1917” is a drama about a group of friends that get lost in the woods during a storm. They take refuge in a cabin. They are slowly drawn back in time to a scene that happened in that room 100 years ago. It’s a spooky ghost story that plays with time and identity.

The Thursday night show will rehearse at BRMS.  It is the comedy “But We Don’t” by Alan Haehnel. The ensemble cast begins the show by making a series of statements about what they could do onstage - but they don’t. They next explore the reasons why they don’t. This quirky comedy is classic Alan Haehnel work!
