SI LIVE: More than Just Comedy

And live, from Bannan Theater, IT'S FRIDAY NIGHT!


 After months of writing, editing, rehearsing, and performing, the SI Live cast and crew performed their sketch comedy show in mid January. Running about an hour long, the show had the audience in stitches every night. Teachers--most notably Joe Ladd ’15, Peter Evans ’16, Ella Chatfield-Stiehler ’15 and Nevin Kelly-Fair ’15 act as Ms. Murphy, Mr. Quattrin, Ms. Baratta, and Ms. Maychrowitz. Dr. Quattrin, Mr. Maychrovitch, Ms. Murphy, Ms. Baratta, and Ms. Purcell--allowed students to parody them, with some of the faculty even going as far as lending their personal items to be used as props. In addition to the teachers, the entire student body was a great sport about letting the cast poke fun at anything and everything SI related.


 SI Live is more than just an opportunity for students, teachers, and parents to sit back and laugh. The eight to twelve minute skits revolved around SI student life. Although the material was highly dramatized, it was based on real SI issues--such as the stereotypes of Peninsula, City, or Marin kids. The skits allowed students and teachers alike to realize that although we take great pride in our school, we Wildcats are far from perfect. We still have our flaws, and are probably a long way from fixing them, but at least we can recognize their existence.
