A group of Shenandoah University students have proven to be some of the wittiest ones around.
Founded in 2009 the loaf is a student-led improv comedy troupe. Just last month the group qualified to go to the national college improv tournament which took place in Chicago. The loaf’s skill at improvisation allowed them to bring the first place trophy back to SU. Loaf members say improv has come a long way and is now respected not only as art-entertainment but as a way to develop life skills.
“Team building skills, listening, lifting other people up, supporting each other. Things that you learn in improv and I think it becoming more mainstream its partially because it has such beneficial things.” Meredith McClure & Emma Norville of The Loaf say.
The loaf qualified for the national competition after winning first place in a regional tournament in Baltimore in February. The regional tournament featured 128 teams from across the country.
