Improv Club

Improv is a term that refers to improvisation, which is a form of live theater where the performers make up the dialogue, story, and characters on the spot. It is often used in comedy, but it can also be used in drama and other genres. 

In improv, the performers must be quick-witted and creative to keep the story moving forward. They must listen carefully to their fellow performers and respond in a way that advances the plot. The goal is to create a cohesive story that is entertaining and engaging for the audience.

Club Dates and Times will be announced soon!

Contact the Theatre Director for more details on how you can become a Captain of a Club next season.

2023-2024 Captains: Siren Greenough, Landon Regner, Trent Chemezov and Ridgely Robinson

Cappies Critics

The Critics and Awards Program for High School Students (Cappies) is an international program that recognizes, celebrates and provides learning experiences for high school theater and journalism students and teenage playwrights. The program operates in 13 regions across the United States and Canada with each region consisting of 5 to 55 participating high schools (Heritage belongs to the Blue Ridge Cappies). 

Within each region, every participating high school selects three to nine students for a critic team. These teams are selected through an application process at the end of the previous school year. After receiving training in theater criticism and review writing, they attend plays and musicals at other high schools in their area. They write reviews (of roughly 400 words) on deadline. They are assisted by volunteer teacher-mentors who lead discussions and select the critic-written reviews that are later published by area newspapers with student bylines. 

To learn more about the Cappies, visit The Cappies > Home

Scheduled activities will be announced to those that made the critics team this year.

Contact the Theatre Director for more details about becoming a critic next season. 

2023-2024 Cappies Critic Lead: Zoe Korff
