The Plymouth High School Jolly Pranksters comedy team soon will present its final comic improv show of the school year.

The show will begin at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 4 in the PHS Amphitheatre, 125 Highland Ave. The free show will feature improvisational games played by the team members, or "act-letes," who spontaneously create comedic scenes and skits. Audience participation is highly encouraged and an integral part of each show.

In addition, the Jolly Pranksters will be competing in the annual ComedySportz High School League Tournament at 11 a.m. Saturday, May 6 in Milwaukee. Fans can ride the team bus, which will leave from the PHS student parking lot at 8:30 a.m. and return around 3 p.m.
