SLAPDASH

Genre: Comedy
Developed and Directed by Timothy J. Amrhein

“SLAPDASH” is a fast-paced, funny, “audience-interactive” improv performance in the tradition of "Whose Line is It Anyway?" Two improv teams spontaneously compete to act out hilarious, unscripted scenes as they try to “out-perform” each other in the show where “everything's made up and the points don't matter.”

LINDSAY JOHNSON is a recent graduate of York College. Although Lindsay has been acting for a number of years, his participation in SlapDASH marks only his second appearance in a York College production. Last semester, Lindsay joined the cast of Charlie Victor Romeo, which was directed by Tom Marion. This is Lindsay’s first time being in a play that deals strictly with improv. “I am terrified to death of Improv,” says Lindsay. “I’ve been acting for a few years now and I’ve always had problems when it comes to improvisation. When I saw the chance to audition for SlapDASH, I figured that this play would give me a great opportunity to work on my spontaneity as a performer. I want to be a well-rounded, and versatile actor.” Lindsay would like to thank God for his many blessings, as well as, his family and friends for their support and love.
