Variety Show by the RIT Players.  This show featured many different scenes, songs and even poetry by members of the club.  With its great success, the RIT Players decided to give it another go this year.  This year, the RIT Players are teaming up with RIT Improv. This way we are able to bring the audience more variety in live theater experience and provides an opportunity to send their seniors off in style.

RIT Improv will be doing three different sets including short form games, a Harold and a Lightning Pillar Bucket-A-Thon.  In between the Improv sets, the RIT Players will be performing different acts including “Me and My Dick” from Me and My Dick, “It Takes Two” from Into the Woods and “La Vie Boheme” from Rent. So on Saturday May 11 make sure you stop by Webb Auditorium at 8 PM to see The Last Hurrah! After all, variety is the spice of life!
