FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE June 20, 2012
Comedy Improv is taking center stage
Friday night in Marble Falls as the
participants of MFHS's Fourth Annual
Summer Theater Camp present fun and a
comedic twist with the Chuckle Bucket
Crew. Join the Crew and finally learn why
the chicken crossed the road.
Marble Falls' students from 2 nd through 8th
grade have been working their comedy
chops every afternoon this week during the MFHS Summer Theater Camp. From 1
to 4 p.m., the kids have practiced their jokes and comedic timing. Patino reported
that the students had an amazing time this week. The actors and burgeoning
comedians were encouraged to crack up their classmates (and were applauded for d oing it) during the camp. Some of the class clowns even asked Patino if they could
tell their parents to wait to pick them up so they could spend more time at camp
perfecting their show.
"We're hoping the highlight of the show will be what Art Linkletter was known to say:
'Kids say the darndest things'," said Martha Patino, Theater Camp organizer. "This
week the campers have had the opportunity to participate in four workshops
emphasizing spontaneity, narration and characterization, pantomime, and
improvisation. The results of their efforts will be showcased Friday night. It should be
a fun and memorable night for all in attendance."
The kids are taking their comedy seriously. Overheard during rehearsal: "Knock,
"Who's there?" "No one!" "No one who?"
"No one, really, I'm working on a
"Dude, it's not very funny. I think your timing is off!"
