The eight-time AIA State Championship team will demonstrate many of its award-winning events.

The "Whose Line Is It Anyway" style show will demonstrate students' quick-witted humor in a variety of theater and improv games.

Proceeds will help fund the 10 students who qualified for the National Forensic League Tournament in June in Dallas, Texas. Pursuing their quest for a national team championship, they will compete with more than 2,000 of the top students from all over the country.
