Improv takes the spotlight

Improv is the art of making the scene up on the spot while interacting with the audience for ideas, building off each other in the scene to keep the audience entertained.

Improv is the art of making the scene up on the spot while interacting with the audience for ideas, building off each other in the scene to keep the audience entertained. The improv team practices every Wednesday and Friday after school, putting in many hours to master their art. 

This year, senior Sam Trott said he is looking forward to making people laugh and improving the team’s acting skills. 

Improv is a flexible form of acting since it has to mold to the audience and the team. As a team, they have to follow each other and move the scene forward. 

Freshman Jeff Storms is in his first year on improv; he said his goal is to become closer friends with the team and make people laugh. 

While the students work hard to improve, they are also working toward the Hogan Cup. The Hogan Cup finals is hosted by Unexpected Productions in Pike Place Market. 

To get to Hogan, schools with teams compete in matches. Throughout the season, improv has many matches against other schools. The matches work so that each team plays five games, and whichever team gets the most points from the games wins.

They’re judged on entertainment, narrative and technical directive. These categories are scored out of five points by three judges.

The   team’s   adviser Kevin    Bliss  said     his goal for the year is  “getting the team to Hogan Cup.”

On Thursday, Nov. 14 the team went head to head against Bothell High School in a Hogan match. They  won 65 points to Bothell’s 57 points. This followed the team’s match against Franklin High School on Wednesday, Nov. 13 where  the improv team won. This win might be the one needed to bring the team to the Hogan Cup.

 “It was a really fun match against Bothell. We both had really strong teams, and it was fun to go head to head,” said junior Lily van Veen.

After the Hogan Cup is over, the improv team will put on many shows throughout the year. Their upcoming holiday show is on Friday, Dec. 13 at 7 p.m. in the Little Theater
