Jolly Pranksters to present benefit show

Posted August 7, 2017

The Plymouth High School Jolly Pranksters comic improvisation team is presenting a benefit show to help one of its own.

“Laughing for a Cause,” featuring past and current players, will begin at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 17 in the PHS Amphitheatre, 125 Highland Ave. There is no admission charge, but donations will be accepted at the door and during the show, which was initiated by incoming sophomore Lizzie Riley.

Proceeds from the show and a bake sale will benefit Mitch Arnold, a Jolly Pranksters member and incoming PHS junior who recently discovered that his cancer has returned. The Blood Center has been invited to have a “be the match” booth to test for bone marrow donors.

The 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.
