(February 8th, 2019) Only two weeks after our very successful run of Brooklyn, the Musical, County Prep Theatre Arts improvisers performed in our fifth annual Improv show and third annual competitive improvisation event. The battling teams, The Untouchables and The KIMprovables competed in a series of improv games as part of a fundraiser for our theatre department. Although The Untouchables, led by Senior Sirena Morales took the trophy this time around, all our performers won the heart of our audience.
The show was hosted by Junior Yvelisse Vargas, assisted by our Treasure Girl Freshman Madison Roman. As usual, the show was created with audience participation. The audience picked places, relationships, movie titles, and everyday activities, gave quotes from movies to be integrated in the games, and received gifts from our Treasure Chest in return.
The Untouchables, led by Senior Sirena Morales, competed with Senior Robert Delmonte, Juniors Dynajah Smith, and Aury Acosta, Sophomores Ariel Rivera, Jaden Reynolds, and Arbaz Khan, and Freshmen Fred Veloz, and Michael Awad. KIMprovables, led by Senior Ivory Love Torres competed with Junior Tyla Gibson, Sophomores Kim Caputo, Ivellisses Segovia, and Kayla Velazquez and Freshmen Jaden Misaro, Emely Rivera, Ethan Barragan, and Tatyana Serrato.
The two teams took turns in winning the applause of the audience in games such as Freeze Tag, Singing About You, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Sportscasters, Movie Critics, Master and Servant, Taxi, What Are you Trying to Say?, Director, Dubbing, Here Comes Jill. Finally in the end the teams battled it out in the game Scenes from a Hat, where each team had to come up with fast creative ways of joking about random topics. After a nail-biting run, the audience decided and The Untouchables took the third Annual Jamboree trophy. Ms. Shields is extremely proud of her extraordinary creative improvisers as well as the technical crew of the evening; student lighting, sound and video technicians, Eianna Martinez, Sheily Mateos, and Kaine Malachi, and house managers Alyssa Anglade and Reanna Cruz. Thank you all performers and crew for such an amazing performance!
