What is Improv Team / Comedy Sportz

ComedySportzThumbThe ComedySportz High School League is composed of teams of high school improvisational performers from various schools in the greater Indianapolis area. The teams receive training as individual teams as well as some training with all participating schools together.

After training and tryouts through the Fall Semester, ComedySportz matches begin in the Spring Semester.

Elf Unscripted: Improv Team Show: Dec. 21, 22

The BCHS Improv Team invites you to their 2017 Christmas Show: Elf Unscripted! (Why unscripted — No lines have been memorized. We will use the suggestions from the audience for our dialogue, so you’ll need to help!)

The show will be held on Thursday and Friday, Dec. 21 and Dec. 22 at 7:00 p.m. in the Kyle Guyton Theatre (Room 102). General admission tickets are $5. BCHS students and North Deanery students with Future Trojan Passes are free. Space is limited, so reservations are recommended. Online sales close about 45 minutes before each show.

Why Improvisation? Besides teaching teamwork AND having fun, improvisation develops performance skills that can carry over in many life situations: listening, observing, being in the moment and thinking on your feet.

Team coach is Tyler Mayer at tmayer@bishopchatard.org. There are 17 students on the 2017/2018 team. Practices are Fridays, 2:15-4:15 p.m. in the Kyle Guyton Theatre (room 102).
