Illinois State University students put on a comedic performance of corky skits to kick off the end of the semester. 

Illinois State Night Live has two performances one beginning at 7 p.m. and the other at 10 p.m. Friday at the Normal Theater. Tickets are $3 for students and $5 for adults. 

Just as the name sounds, you can expect comedy inspired from the popular show Saturday Night Live. With fuzzy handcuffs, accents and puns, this show won’t fail to make you laugh. 

The cast is made up of ISU students of all different kinds of majors. From Elementary education to Political Science, this cast of actors welcome anyone with a passion for the theatre. 

Director and ISU senior communication interactive media major Daniel Blewitt decided to direct this semester's show with his longtime friend Michael Cronin because they had so many fun ideas the make for a great show. They both couldn’t wait to have their ideas and visions come to the stage. 

“This is the kind of thing we want to do. We want to act or direct. So we are going to take all the skills we learned here at college and then we already worked out the kinks so when we come to the real world people will see that we know our stuff,” Blewitt said. 

Blewitt and Cronin have acted throughout college and really feel passionate of acting and directing. 

“Before I was a director, I was an actor for three semester. It was a lot of fun. This is pretty much the only club I’ve actually stuck with throughout Illinois State. It’s been a great creative outlet and I decided to be a director with Dan because we love it so much that we wanted to see it go further and wanted to carry the torch,” Cronin said.
