Ranting Llamas Improv Troupe to Perform at Footlight!

Ranting-Llamas-2013Get ready for a night of impromptu fun with the Purdue University North Central student improv club! The Ranting Llamas are set to perform Friday, March 6, from 7:30 to 9 pm at Footlight Theatre.

The Ranting Llamas student improv group has been performing for four years. It presents a unique comedy experience that is appropriate for all ages and outlooks. Comedy situations are made up on the spot. The audience is often asked for suggestions the actors use as a springboard for a scene, which makes improv a 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.

Admission is $10 at the door. Half of the door sales will be donated to a La Porte girl's fundraiser to purchase wigs for children that have lost their hair due to chemotherapy.The performance is rated PG-13.

The Ranting Llamas cast includes ; Drew Holt, Rachel Rogers and Jane Davis-Bey of Michigan City; Cortney McIntosh, Haley Jackson, Robert Simpson and CieAna Marsh of LaPorte; Nate Werner, Union Mills; Devon Hogan, Bridget Dudley and Erik Sturgeon of Chesterton; Kevin Paceley, Alex Strohmeyer and Jimmy Wells of Valparaiso; Josh Hubinger, Kouts; and Travis Ziegler, Hebron.
