Upstate youth improv troupe named to All-Health Team
COLUMBIA, S.C. – The "Imagine That Improv Theater Troupe" has been named to the All-Health Team, the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control announced today.
"'Imagine That' is helping youth and adults deal with difficult and serious issues such as alcohol, tobacco and other drugs, teen pregnancy, and mental illness through improvisational theater," said Joann Minder, All-Health Team program coordinator. "'Imagine That' cast members create powerful, thought provoking scenes that stir lively conversation and lead to audience participation."
Minder said "Imagine That" plays a vital role in the lives of the volunteer cast members. They are provided an opportunity to become leaders and make a positive impact in their community.
"Imagine That" was started in 1994. In 2005, the program partnered with the Spartanburg Little Theatre to become a community program. The troupe performs throughout the state.
DHEC, WIS-TV, and BlueCross-BlueShield of South Carolina sponsor the All-Health Team. Each month, the partnership recognizes an individual or youth group promoting health in their community.
