The hit 1990s comedy television series “Whose Line Is It Anyway?,” has inspired the next generation of staged improv in The Woodlands.

But rather than comedy for comedy’s sake, students at The Woodlands High School Improv Troupe are using the healing power of laughter to fundraise for charity.

The troupe, which comprises 12 students, will take to the stage for the second time this fall and perform a variety of family-friendly skits at 7 p.m. on Oct. 29 at the senior campus auditorium. click here for complete story
