The Ranting Llamas student improv group has been performing for four years. The Ranting Llamas will celebrate Halloween with a unique comedy experience that is appropriate for all ghouls and gals. Comedy situations are made up on the spot and the audience is often incorporated into a scene. Sometimes a situation is suggested by the audience and the actors build off of it, which makes improv fun for actors and non-actors alike. A simple word, action or an idea can be the basis of a skit performed by one member of the group or the entire ensemble – concepts like throwing snowballs, riding a bus, walking a dog or staying awake in class can all be become the basis for a comedy routine.
The Ranting Llamas cast includes Rachel Rogers, Michigan City; CieAna Marsh, LaPorte; Haley Jackson, LaPorte; Jane Davis-Bey, Michigan City; Bridget Dudley, Chesterton; Devon Hogan, Chesterton; Drew Holt, Long Beach; Cortney Mc Intosh, LaPorte; Kevin Paceley, Valparaiso; Robert Simpson, LaPorte; Alex Strohmeyer, Valparaiso; Lauren Strohmeyer, Valparaiso; Erik Sturgeon, Chesterton and Nathan Werner, Union Mills.
