OSKALOOSA, IA — Take time to have some impromptu fun at the George Daily Auditorium – no scripts, no writing, just improvisation in this new program called Saturdaily !mprov for middle school and high school students.

“I wanted to do something for older kids, and the improv really did well over the summer,” said Andy McGuire, Youth Theatre Director at the auditorium. “Once a month on a Saturday we’ll meet at the George Daily for two hours and play some games and have some fun.”

Saturdaily !mprov will meet from 10 a.m. – noon on January 25, February 22, March 22, and April 19, with a showcase on May 10.
