Shenanigans for the New Year

February 9, 2015

Improv. Hilarious. There you have it. I have successfully summed up last Saturday’s Shenanigans performance in two words.

In all seriousness (or at least a bit more seriousness), though, Shenanigans is quickly becoming one of my favorite parts of the Southern Virginia experience. I know that doesn’t sound like a very high recommendation coming from the girl who confessed in her last blog post that her ideal Friday evening is spent at home reading a book, but it’s true nonetheless. Shenanigans is simply irresistible. This irresistibility was made clear by the fact that they’ve had to relocate to a larger venue, and they still managed to fill that.

Last Saturday, the talented bunch of intelligent and enthusiastic goofballs kept the entire crowd roaring with laughter. It seems we just never tire of seeing John-John Leake picked up. Plus, one has to admire Spencer Franco for his excellent imitation of a Holmes-ian detective (“That stain in the rug obviously came from a bottle of grape juice because neither of us drinks alcohol because we’re secretly Mormons”).

If you haven’t yet attended a Shenanigans show, I urge you to do so upon the next opportunity. By then, they might have filled the entirety of the Stoddard Activities Center, though — so come early.

    I’m so excited to see this! My husband, Matt Taylor, was one of the founders of Shenanigans. In fact, it was after a show I watched him perform in, that I knew I had a crush on him! We are so happy to see it thriving!!!
