Northwestern College Improv Group to Host 24-Hour Charity Show

Orange City, Iowa — A unique fundraiser is going on this Saturday in Orange City.

It’s not the kind of fundraiser you normally think of. Northwestern College’s student-led improvisational acting (or “improv”) group, the Black V is hosing a 24-Hour “Improv Marathon.” It’s a charity fundraiser for Genesis House. Those involved tell us that one of the Black V members, Jillian Simon, is connected to Genesis House through her practicum experience with the nonprofit.

The Improv Marathon will feature improv workshops, a children’s show, a murder mystery show, and several other events. There will be pizza and frozen custard for a free-will donation.

Again, the event is this Saturday, April 27 from 9:00 a.m. to April 28 at 9:00 a.m.

Highlights include a high school student workshop and show from 10:00 a.m. to noon, a children’s workshop and show from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., frozen custard at 1 p.m., a murder mystery show at 5:00 p.m., pizza at 6 p.m., and even an improvised musical at 7 p.m., all at Northwestern’s Ramaker Center, in the Fireside room. For those who haven’t been to Northwestern in several years, the Ramaker Center is the former library, across Highway 10 from Fern Smith Hall and the Northwestern dining hall.
