If they aren't hard to talk about, they sure stimulate conversation and emotion. Social Action Theatre is a group that performs small skits, roughly two to four minutes in length, which involve topics that may be hard to talk about with other people.

Students never play just one role and always preform improvisation. After each skit, the audience is able to question the actors while they remain in character.

Bob Krajewski, the advisor of Leadership in Action, has a background in the analysis of teaching. Krajewski is constantly analyzing the audience, if they're bored, he'll have students from the audience play a role.

This past Friday, a small number of students went to Western Tech. to perform some skits in a few classes. They said they were nervous, but gradually warmed up to the audience. Members of the board have all mentioned how much they have grown while being a part of Leadership in Action.

Senior Abby Curley, the Co-Vice President of Recruiting for Leadership in Action, has been with the group since her freshman year. She originally joined to fulfill a volunteering requirement, but stayed because "of the people, opportunities, and the impact it had on everyone involved." Leadership in Action has performed over 50,000 times in total of 17 states and China.

To be a member of Leadership in Action, one must go to two performances, or 6 hours of performance. For more information, Leadership in Action has their next meeting on March 5 at 5 p.m. in 125 Morris.
