The Woodlands High School Theatre Department knows how to get the creative juices flowing. The Improv Troupe held their 3rd Annual “Teacher vs. Student” Improv show & fundraiser Saturday, Dec. 12th, at 7:00pm.
The show raised money for HOPE for Will Herndon Fund for Juvenile Batten Disease Research. All ticket, collection baskets, concession, and apparel funds will go to the HOPE for Will Herndon Fund.
The show featured teachers and faculty members of The Woodlands High School. They competed in a head to head competition with the students to see which team are the best improvers. The show was held in the TWHS Senior Campus Auditorium.
Batten’s disease is a rare, inherited disorder of the nervous system that usually begins in childhood. The Herndon’s are a local family whose son Will was diagnosed in 2009 when he was 6 years old. The Herndon’s have teamed up with the Beyond Batten Disease Foundation to help raise money to find a cure.
The Woodlands High School Improv Troupe is comprised of a talented group of 17 students who perform fun, family friendly shows of the comedy genre. Improv games from shows like “Who’s Line is it Anyway?” and “Saturday Night Live”, along with original digital shorts and messy games are what you can expect from a typical show.
Each month a different charity is chosen to donate all funds to. Last month the troupe raised $2,000 for the Panther Creek Inspiration Ranch, a Premiere Accredited Center through the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International.
