An executive Cupid (Adrian Clark, 11) fends off a reckless rookie (Blake Vogelpohl, 12) in a Valentine’s Day sketch.

On Friday, February 15, the increasingly popular PGHS improv troupe, Wince and Repeat, dazzled an overly full house with original comedic sketches and hilarious improvised scenes based off of suggestions provided by the gargantuan audience.

The show bore a Valentine’s Day theme, and, though it remained true to it (Stu Pid of Cupid Inc.) , diverged slightly with scenes such as those regarding the enslavement of  “articulate” humans by dinosaurs and the story of an unfortunate bee with a bad aim.

Improvisers Adrian Clark, Elijah Taurke, Isabella Rowntree, Marina Piper, Jesse Herzog, Luke Herzog, and Blake Vogelpohl were joined by “new foe” Seth Knoop, who made quite the debut. These talented improvisers spent countless hours practicing alone as well as with “the leading company in improv-based sketch comedy,” The Second City (talk about dedication). The improvisors were also interviewed on the radio.

Dating games, musical improv, and a round of “questions only” were all showcased, and man did audience members lose themselves with laughter. Doors opened at 6:30 PM sharp, and the show ended with the funniest skit around 9:00 PM, though no one was in any way eager to leave. One can still hear the stentorian disappointed moan delivered by the audience in the Sea-Wing Theatre if one just listens closely. PGHS improv troupe Wince and Repeat is eager to put on more shows throughout the course of the year. Don’t miss ‘em folks, they’re food for the anguished soul! You will laugh your socks off, guaranteed!
