Special to The R-C |

Douglas High School Thespian Troupe 990 performed their way into spots at the state thespian festival in Vegas.

The community can get a taste of their performances at a showcase today and Saturday.

The showcase coupled with a silent auction will be a fundraiser to help raise money to send the troupe to the state competition.

Silent auction items include dinner and one-night stay at the Hard Rock, dinner and show and a stay at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe, an $800 photoshoot and two rounds of golf from Empire Ranch.

“Let the DHS Improv Team leave you in stitches by creating on-the-spot scenarios based on audience suggestions,” Drama teacher Amy Sando said. “In between scenes, DHS Thespian Troupe 990 will perform the solo musical numbers and monologues that earned them the right to compete at the Nevada State Thespian Festival in Las Vegas in March. The entire troupe qualified for state, and you will be impressed with their display of talent and have the opportunity to help raise funds to get them there.”

If you cannot attend but would like to support the Troupe, direct donations can be made to any Improv player or Drama Club member.

Performances start at 7 p.m. in the high school drama room 101.

Tickets are $5 before the show and $10 at the door.

They can be purchased from any drama club member.
