SFCC Punchline Players Crack Up Sedalia with Improv Comedy [INTERVIEW]
There’s some great things happening out at State Fair Community College. The arts and performances are always getting some new and fresh perspectives into our area.
Check out the Punchline Players, SFCC’s comedy troupe that relies on audience suggestions to create humorous skits. This style of comedy is constructed from a predetermined game, structure, or idea and driven by audience suggestions. Performances are a part of the grade for Problems in Theatre: Improv Comedy class.
I had actors Heather Hill, Tyler Newsom, and Sara Hill in to tell us a little about tomorrow night (Nov. 2).
The Punchline Players at State Fair Community College will present the second of four improv comedy shows for the 2013-2014 Theatre Arts season at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 2 in the Thompson O’Sullivan Studio Theatre in the Yeater Learning Center on the Sedalia campus. The shows are free; no tickets are required. Shows are for mature audiences only. The five comics, at the mercy of the audience, perform short scenes in the style of the television show, “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” Members include Anthony Alverez and Sarah Hill, Versailles; Amanda Doyle, Fort Walton Beach, Fla.; Tyler Newsom, Warsaw; and James Sheppard, Knob Noster. Several members of the Flatliners improv troupe from Missouri Valley College also will perform.
The Punchline Players will perform again in April and May. For more information about SFCC’s performing and fine arts go to sfccmo.edu/thearts or call the Box Office at (660) 596-7387 from noon to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Make sure you don’t miss out on this weekend, and make a point to show up to next semester’s shows!
