Pennsbury High School’s Thespian Troupe 830 is presenting Thursday Night Live!, a fundraiser and improv show in the style of the famous Saturday Night Live. It will be performed for one night only on Thursday, Oct. 27, at 7 p.m. in the Orange Auditorium (aka The Cave) at Pennsbury High School West, 608 S. Olds Blvd. in Fairless Hills.
The show is student-directed by senior Cassi Daley, along with the production team of Addison Blumberg, Meghan Crohe and Ellie Umstead. Writers include Gianna Mathas, Ava Mascio, Andrew Meschke, Gianna Miller and Annamarie Radzinski.
Thursday Night Live! was started seven years ago as a fundraiser to help troupe members offset costs of attending the PA State Thespian Conference. In the spirit of giving as they receive, toiletry donations were collected for a local women’s shelter. This year, canned goods will be donated to the high school’s food pantry run by the school nurse to provide food to vulnerable students. The pantry is in need of canned foods that a student can heat up, such as canned ravioli, soups, mac and cheese cups, oatmeal, individual snack bags and fruit cups.
Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for students and can be purchased at the door 45 minutes before the performance. Cash only. Adults who bring a donation will have their ticket discounted to the student price of $5. Visit pennsburydrama.org for additional information.
