An Excuse to Laugh is set to resume its improv performances this week. Held in the Bannister Glasshouse on a weekly basis, the troupe entertains students, faculty, staff and visitors alike with free shows every Thursday night. Starting at 10 p.m., the performances typically consist of a variety of games and scenes acted out by the troupe for approximately an hour each week.
This season, An Excuse to Laugh sports an expanded line up of fifteen performers consisting of new and old talent. Along with these new additions come new games and styles keeping each show fresh and unique. “Everyone should come because we are what our title says, an excuse to laugh and relieve some stress from the school or work week.” Said An Excuse to Laugh’s current leader Nick Cothran. In addition to the brand of humor the Reinhardt community comes to expect from the troupe, “There are a few surprises we have in store this semester!” said Cothran.
Unless otherwise announced, the shows will be held every week except for breaks and holidays. Those in attendance should try to arrive a few minutes beforehand to assure preferred seating arrangements as well as be prepared to offer prompts to the performers or to otherwise participate.
