By Amanda Arena

The cast gathers together during one of its recent rehearsals to provide a glimpse of one of the scenes in the show.

Looking for a good laugh? Consider yourself invited to Live with Alpha Psi… IT’S SATURDAY NIGHT!!! on Dec. 11 in the Spitz Theater.

The sketch comedy show has become a campus tradition that Rider’s National Theater Fraternity Alpha Psi Omega (APO) is excited to present again.

”The show is called Saturday Night Live (SNL) and features a variety of comic styles and genres,” director and junior theater major Kelcie Kosberg said. “We have a great blend of styles of humor that can appeal to all ages and majors.”

Dean of Students Anthony Campbell will host the show this year.  He is the first host of SNL to ever return.  Former hosts include associate dean of freshmen Ira Mayo, associate director of athletics Karin Torchia and area director of residence life Jamiyl Mosley.

“It’s a fun tradition and a great way for people to forget about finals or problems and just have a good laugh,” senior cast member and finance major Tom Smallwood said.

The cast of 11, along with Dean Campbell, has been working on the show since October.

“It’s one of the only shows of its kind on campus,” junior stage manager and arts administration major Lisa Ann Wetzel said.  “It is completely student created, run and performed.  That makes the content relevant and fun for our peers.”

Shows are at 9 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.  Admission price is $5 for everyone.
