Do the names Emma Thompson or John Cleese sound familiar to you? How about Hugh Laurie, otherwise known as “House, M.D.”? All are alumni of the Cambridge Footlights, a renowned acing troupe based in Cambridge, England. On Wednesday, September 15, the Cambridge Footlights opened their US tour show, “Good For You,” and their first stop was right here at Alvernia University.
Performing live in the newly renovated Francis Hall Theater, the Cambridge Footlights captivated students, faculty, and staff alike with their versatile acting, devastating humor, and snarky British wit. This hilarious and talented group, consisting of five young actors, Ben Ashenden, James Moran, Alex Owen, Ellie Ross, and Lucien Young, packed a two-hour performance chock full of laughs.
The Alvernia University Theatre Program and Student Activities sponsored this unforgettable event, which brought a refreshing taste of the UK to campus.
