Theater Sports at the Arrowhead Center for the Arts Friday

What sports season comes between basketball and baseball? Theater sports! This Friday, March 21, seniors will compete on stage at 7 p.m. in the Arrowhead Center for the Arts. You’ll want to get a seat early for this ever-popular event, now in its ninth season. Tickets are $5 for students and $8 for adults.

The competition can get a little crazy, but for a great cause:  the College Literature class’s annual spring theater trip to the Twin Cities. This year we’ll see both Rain and Othello.

Coached by Michael McHugh, Theater Sports is improvisational theater with a competitive sports angle. In a typical match, two teams challenge each other, react to a surprise command, and count on the audience to judge them. In addition to suggesting wacky scenes for the teams to enact, a few brave audience members may wish to take the stage and compete also!

 Theater Sports teams include Thomas Anderson, Jessica Berg-Collman, Joe Borud, Anna Carman, Joey Chmelik, Sarah Deschampe, Cy Fortunato, Jonny Jacobsen, Charlie Lawler, Megan Lehto, Shannon O’Phelan, Breana Peterson, Melanie Stoddard, Abby Sutton, and Seth Warren.
