RLC Thespians welcome public to night of improv comedy

INA, Ill. (Jan. 22, 2020) — Looking for a night of laughs? Or maybe you want to test your own comedic skills? The Rend Lake College Thespians Club will host its annual Evening of Comedy Improvisation at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 30 in the RLC Theatre.

THESPIANS FULL GROUP 2019The Rend Lake College Thespians pose onstage for a photo. Members include (front row, left to right): Sera Samadzai, Raven Gudermuth, Autumn Mohr, Makayla Bowden, Hannah Smithpeters, Faith Allendorf, Nealy Lewis, Heidi Carroll, Lacey Grammer and Ember Milby. Back row: Celia Summers, Ryan Webster, Dawson Suedmeyer, Conner Whitener, Samantha Gossett, Tyree McCarty, Will Adams, Claire Stotlar and Payton Gregge. 

The event — similar to the show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” — will be performed by the RLC Thespians along with audience members. Theatre director Tracey Webb said they are looking for a large turnout of people who enjoy comedy without the safety of a script and who would like to try their comedic chops on stage with the RLC Thespians. The event is about 90 minutes long and is suitable for junior high students and older.

The Thespian Troupe began in 2002 as a club for students to practice their comedy skills and this annual event has been running for about a decade. The Thespians work on comedy throughout the semester at meetings, as well as at local events, schools, nursing homes, and hospitals. The show should last about one hour.
