Three Nights of Chicago-Style Improv at Wilton High School

What do Tiny Fey, Amy Poehler, Jason Sudeikis and Steve Carell all have in common?

They all trained in the art of improvisation at The Second City (Chicago) to launch their comedy careers!

For the Underclassmen Show, students at Wilton High School will present FREEPLAY: A Night of Improv Comedy,” a family-friendly night of improvisational comedy based on audience suggestions. The shows are scheduled Thursday, Feb. 6 at 7:30 p.m., and Friday, Feb. 7 and Saturday, Feb. 8 at 8 p.m..

The show is directed by Heather DeLude, WHS teacher and Second City Conservatory alumna, and features students in grades 9-11 performing spontaneous scenes and games. If you love the television show “Whose Line is it Anyway?” and have never experienced live improvisational comedy, this is your opportunity. Each night will be a completely different show guided by audience participation. Come see why this art form has spread to practically every major city and college campus in the country and whose popularity continues to grow.

The show will take place at The Little Theater inside the main doors of Wilton High School. The ticket information line is 203.834.4844 and tickets can be ordered by emailing whstix@wilton.k12.ct.us. Tickets will also be sold at the door, depending on availability. There is no reserved seating.
