“Sketches!” has become a spring tradition at SCC. Each year, director Steve Cleberg selects, from over a hundred submissions from across the United States, the best comic sketches to suit the actors who audition for a spot in the spring production. This year, four short comedies will be performed by seven actors, most of them doing double duty, and interspersed with the comic stylings of John Alexander.
The first sketch of the evening focuses on a bizarre set of circumstances at an innocent evening of dining at a Chinese restaurant. You may want to reconsider opening your fortune cookie after viewing this hilarious short comedy. The cast for the short sketch entitled “Misfortune” by Mark Harvey Levine is made up of three SCC students Katie Lowe, James Rose and Caitlyn Wheeler. There are also appearances by Doug Silvers and Dana Floro.
The second comedy, “Architect” by Robert T. Fields takes a look at a meeting between a client and an architect. The meeting takes a comically surreal turn as the client reveals his identity and the mission he has planned for the architect. Aaron Whitehead and Chris Harris play the client and architect, respectively.
In the third short sketch entitled, “The Business Plan” by Philip Hall, two good old boys, Bo and Lester, become inspired by the possibility of going into business together. The role of Lester will be played by Doug Silvers. SCC student James Rose role will take the role of Bo.
The evening will conclude with a short sketch entitled, “Answer the Question, Iris” written by playwrights Stefanie DeLeo and Jenifer Menedis . The sketch takes place in a psychiatrist’s office where Iris, played by SCC student Katie Lowe, has come to Harry, played by Aaron Whitehead, for assistance. Doug Silver also appears in the sketch.
