Spring Children's Show

RLC Thespians practice a form of acting called Comedy Improvisation. They perform the same kind of quick-thinking acting exercises as seen on television's "Who's line is it anyway," as well as the exercises "Second City" school of Improvisational acting has mastered. This sort of acting led to the popular Saturday Night Live television series, still running since the 1970s!

The Thespians also rehearse written scripts and perform plays based on current events or issues that teach lessons. Club meetings take place each Friday in the theatre at 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. during the fall and spring semesters.

Tracey Webb, the sponsor of the RLC thespians can be reached in her office by email or phone: or 618-437-5321, Ext. 1295.
