Recently, I performed in Valparaiso High School's Mocha Madness. We worked extremely hard on all of our games, learning the art of improvisation.
It upsets me to see that Jack Given, in a recent letter to the editor, has reduced all of our dedication to a critique he might not even be justified to write.
Upon review of the publicly available YouTube videos, I failed to find a single sketch in which we focused on deprecating someone. As a freshman member of this fantastic cast, this was by far one of the best things I have ever chosen to participate in. Not a single person in the cast is rude, condescending or contemptuous.
With all due respect to Given, perhaps next time he should actually attend one of our performances. I'm sure he'll enjoy it.
