Under the auspices of Comedy Sportz LA, THS Theatre Arts has its own Comedy Sportz team that competes in the CSZ High School League against teams from other high schools. Matches against alumnae and the Tesoro faculty are also held during the year. During the matches, with a referee present, two teams compete in a battle of wits and improvisational skills. Audience participation is encouraged, and the audience members decide on the winner. The Comedy Sportz team rehearses weekly, and the matches are held approximately monthly. A Comedy Sportz Match will fill the bill if you want an evening of family friendly, laugh-out-loud entertainment. For additional information, please go to www.comedysportzla.com and refer to the ComedySportz calendar for the dates of this year's matches.
