Improv Club meets every Tuesday at 2 p.m. in the Black Box.

The club is open to any Southwest student, although there is also a designated improv team for performances and competitions.

“Last year, we had eight members. This year, I switched it to six because I wanted people on the team to have more opportunities to perform,” club president and senior John Roth said. “I thought it would be a good opportunity for new people to get more experience.”

This year, the team members are senior Charis Erickson, junior Zach Moeller, senior Avery Olson, junior Ethan Olson, junior Ryan Richert, and senior John Roth.

Two years ago, the competitive team won third place at State Thespian Festival. Some students are a part of the club to watch, while others like to be involved in practices and performances.

“I started watching improv halfway through my sophomore year, but didn’t become part of the competitive team until my junior year,” senior Avery Olson said. “What I really love about improv is how much it makes me laugh. Just watching people perform for you can sometimes be the best part.”

The competitive team performed in the LSW Theatre Cabaret at the end of term one as well as last year in both the fall and spring Cabaret performances. Those who are interested in being a part of Improv Club can contact the club Instagram (@lswimprov) or attend the next meeting on Oct. 12.
