ComedySportz College Team

September 19 @ 7:30
October 17 @ 7:30
November 4 @ 7:30
December 9 @ 7:30

ComedySportz College Team is fast-paced, family-friendly improvisational comedy, played as a sport. Two teams take turns making up scenes, playing games and singing songs – and the audience votes on which team they like the best. It's all presided over by a referee, who keeps things moving, calls the ComedySportz College Team fouls and takes suggestions shouted out by the audience before each game.

The show isĀ hilarious. The game-show formatĀ is infectiously ridiculous, the performances often delightful, and the laughs vary throughout the night from light chuckling to gut-busting. - The Crooked Porch

Theatre Program

Over thirty students were cast during last week's auditions. There are even more students who will be working backstage to make this classic come to life in November. The story follows the small town of Grover's Corners through three acts: "Daily Life," "Love and Marriage," and "Death and Eternity." Narrated by a stage manager and performed with minimal props and sets, audiences follow the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually—in one of the most famous scenes in American theatre—die.

Past Performances

Beyond Therapy

The LSSU Theatre Company is proud to present Beyond Therapy, a hilarious play highlighting social miscues and mishaps set in the 1970s. Filled with slapstick comedy and absurd humor, this play is sure to have you in stitches for its duration. Directing the play is Jenn Hunter, assistant professor in the College of Fine and Performing Arts.

Fractured Fairytales

The Lake Superior State University Dance Company is proud to present Fractured Fairy Tales, this year's fanciful spring dance concert that "fractures" three popular fairy tales with music and dance, bringing unsuspected twists and turns to the stories and outcomes.

Gerry Mooney

Dr. Gerry Mooney, a visiting professor in Scottish Studies at the University of Wisconsin–River Falls gave a presentation, "Where now for Scotland and the UK following the Scottish Independence Referendum?" at the Arts Center.


A quintet that has been called "the hottest Irish acoustic group on the planet" will provide some warmth to the Eastern Upper Peninsula and Northern Ontario during a performance at Lake Superior State University's Arts Center.

Harriet Tubman

Actress Leslie McCurdy takes questions from the audience after her one-person production The Spirit of Harriet Tubman at Lake Superior State University's Arts Center on Feb. 5. More than 500 students from throughout the Eastern Upper Peninsula saw McCurdy use Tubman's own words in telling the story of a life from her earliest experiences as a slave, through her work on the underground railroad, to her continued commitment to others in her later years.
