Show Description
What do you get when you mix comedy sketches, music, improv, and opportunities for alumni and faculty to perform with current CHCA high school students? We're not sure either, but this show promises to be the "can't miss" show of the season. Using a "Saturday Night Live" format, but family friendly content, the CHCA Theater Department will use everything it’s got to provide an evening of hilarious entertainment. Maybe you could even get into the act!

Show is recommended for age 7 and up as younger children might not get the jokes.
