Gwinnett County Middle School Theatre Students to Visit Clayton State “Improv” Class on April 29

The last day of class for the spring 2010 semester at Clayton State University will be a special one for Phillip DePoy’s group of Improvisational Theatre students.

DePoy, the renowned director of the Clayton State Theatre and an assistant professor of Theatre, has arranged with Cynthia D. Samuels-Jackson to have her Radloff Middle School theatre arts students join his Improvisational Theatre class for a day.

With tongue firmly planted in cheek, DePoy describes the visit by Samuels-Jackson’s 45 Gwinnett County middle schoolers as an “invasion.” Actually, the Radloff students will be participating in improv scenes with Clayton State theatre majors.

“She was looking to expose her troupe to theatre on a collegiate level. I think we can do better,” says DePoy.

A unit of the University System of Georgia, Clayton State University is an outstanding comprehensive metropolitan university located 15 miles southeast of downtown Atlanta.
