  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]

Improv taught at BG

As anyone who watches SNL or “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” will tell you, improv is one of the best forms of comedy and is now one University students will have a chance to try their hand.

The Career Center, in conjunction with the Theater Department, is set to host an improvisation workshop taught by The Second City’s Director of Diversity and Outreach program, Dionna Griffin.

The event will take place tomorrow in room 308 of the Student Union from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. The first part of the workshop will consist of a complete background lecture outlining The Second City – its history, alumni and opportunities that may be available for students. The remaining time will be devoted to improv itself.

Griffin will divide the audience into groups and teach the fundamental games and exercises of improvisation, where participants are on their feet learning how to work together, explore their creativity and imaginations and develop self-confidence in a fun, supportive environment, according to The Second City Web page.

The Second City has spawned such Saturday Night Live and Mad TV legends as John Belushi, Mike Myers, Bill Murray and Gilda Radner.
