The Humber Students’ Federation new Theatrical Society club is encouraging people to get out there and have fun.
Andre Apperley, 19, a first-year broadcast television and videography student, said he created Theatrical Society to recreate some of the enjoyment he had in his high school drama classes.
“I took drama all four years of high school and I missed it, and I thought this would be a good way to meet people with a same kind of interest,” Apperley said.
The members of the club come from different programs, although some of them have been doing theatre for many years. Apperley said his intention for the first few meetings was to get all the members on the same page.
First-year fashion arts student, Francesca Porco, 19, is one of the members with theatre experience. She said theatre and acting had a big influence on her college decision.
“I’ve always been in theatre, my entire life, ever since I was a little girl, and it was something I was really looking for when choosing a college. So finding out that Humber has had (a theatre club) in the past really got me going into it,” said Porco.
Another member, second-year bachelor of nursing student Amrinder Sidhu, decided to join the club in hopes of doing better in class presentations.
“I really like the improv part that we’re doing. I hope we can do something on stage,” said Sidhu.
Apperley said he had plans to create a public improv event entitled Whose Line is It Anyway, after the well-known TV series with the same name, at LinX Lounge towards the end of November.
The Theatrical Society club meets every Wednesday from 6 to 7 p.m. in the North campus U building with windows on three sides of the space overlooking the Arboretum.
