Group Description = When we make a sandwich, we carefully craft it from the finest ingredients. So here at Newman University when we wanted to make an improv troupe, we selected the freshest, most diverse, and most flavorful folks from every department and activity and level of strangeness at Newman, and threw them together in one blackbox theatre to see what would happen. The result is a taste sensation that delights our audiences and yet, somehow, leaves them hungry for more and more and more.
