PHS Jolly Pranksters to present free show


The Plymouth High School Jolly Pranksters comedy team will perform its annual Post Holiday Blues Buster Comic Improvisation Show on Jan. 7.

The show, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 7 in the amphitheatre at the school, 125 Highland Ave. The team is celebrating its 10 anniversary this year, and Jolly Pranksters alumni are especially encouraged to attend.

A Jolly Pranksters comic improvisation show consists of a variety of improvisational games played by the team members, or “act-letes,” who spontaneously create comedic scenes and skits. The players often compete to earn points that are awarded based on the audience response, and the group that is dubbed by the referee as being the funniest earns the most points. Audience participation is highly encouraged and an integral part of each show.

A free comic improvisation workshop, taught by professional Comedy Sportz comedians, will be held after the show. All are welcome to participate.

The PHS Jolly Pranksters is the only high school comic improvisation team from Sheboygan County that participates in the Comedy Sportz High School League.

The 2015-16 Jolly Pranksters players include:

Seniors: Alex Gravatt, Kate Harms, Alex Kleiber, Julia Krueger, Adam LaVine, Abby Nicholson, Kelly Pocian, Mary Riley, Acacia To, Stephanie Zimmerman and Quinn Zwick

Juniors: Elisabeth Balistrerri, Josh Hafemann and Delaney Scudella

Sophomores: Paul Hammes, Justin Schmitz and Madilyn Straub

Freshmen: Gabrielle Arnold, Mitch Arnold, Jacob Cook, Adam Dwyer, Ana Hyer, Sydney Tackes and Alex Turicik
