Western’s Peak Out recently hosted three nights of improv. Each night had a different theme; Thursday night was “Love and Turmoil,” Friday night was “Good O’l Standard, Regular Run O’ The Mill,” and Saturday night was “Do or Die.” Each night needed audience participation to help fill in the blanks for on-the-spot story ideas.
All three nights were a surprise, not only for the audience but also for the actors. The hosts of the night, Noah Hoyt and Zach Prall, gave the actors different games to work with and included the audience every chance they could. Each game had a purpose and included an idea from the crowd.
The actors had no idea what was going to be thrown at them while up on stage. The crowd was able to yell out any idea that popped into their heads. The actors had to quickly get creative with how they would play out the rest of the story.
Being able to come up with skits from random thoughts from the audience was a task cut out for the Peak Out crew. They did a great job at keeping the crowd entertained.
A student, Maddie Henrich expressed, “the show was hilarious.”
