Don’t worry, there is still time to improvise
If you haven’t had a chance to watch and participate in an interactive, spontaneous, part-theatrical and part-comedic show, there is still time. The last Improv show of the year will be held on June 2.
Northgate Improv is notorious for filling the Little Theatre with laughter on Friday nights. The theatre is always filled to the back with students, teachers, and parents to watch the Improv Team play various games and activities.
Senior Improv captains Natalia Szarmach and Carson Dowhan reminisce on a fantastic year that is coming to a close.
“The fire alarm went off during the show before winter break. We were in the middle of a game and everyone had to evacuate,” Szarmach said.
The team cleverly improvised in an unexpected turn of events.
“We continued improv on the lawn in front of the mural,” Dowhan added.
The captains were proud when their February show sold out. Dowhan has been
involved in Improv since his sophomore year and has never performed at a sold-out show.
“I am so proud of our team and how far we’ve come,” Dowhan said. “I’ve seen the growth of my teammates and I can see many of them being future captains.”
Szarmach explained how every year, there is some level of uncertainty of next year’s improv program. However this year, they are optimistic in next year’s team and their ability.
“I am beyond confident who we are leaving improv with,” Szarmach said.
Make sure to come out on June 2 to watch the Northgate Improv Team perform their last show. It will be the last performance for seniors Natalia Szarmach, Carson Dowhan, Sophia Blake, and Nik Gay. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for a 7:00 p.m. show and the entrance fee is $3. As the team always says, be there, or be square.
