Improv has a long history at Annunciation School. It began close to forty years ago with seventh and eighth graders performing an improvisational play developed by the students and Ms. Strickland. The first performance of Improv as it is recognized today occurred in 1982. The cast consisted of about twenty-five students who wanted to take part in something a little “different.”
Today the cast consists of nearly ninety members and has two directors. The class meets after school three days a week from February through April. Students choreograph movement, orchestrate sound, and create skits. These scenes are then polished and put together as a total performance. The goal of Improv is to give a creative outlet to each student and in the process foster confidence and team work. We are proud of this tradition and of all the students who have gone through the program.
