An Alcohol Awareness Program with a Comedic Twist

The alcohol awareness program, “A Shot of Reality,” will be performed September 13 at 7 p.m. at Sauk Valley Community College’s Mathis Theater.

This unique show throws in a comedic twist as it combines interactive comedy, audience role playing, facts and education to increases awareness about the dangers of alcohol. The show talks to students as their friends instead of preaching at them as their parents. It covers topics such as alcoholism, binge drinking, social mistakes, assault, health risks, drunk driving and more.

“A Shot of Reality,” performed by the improv group Mission Improvable, recently received the 2011 Comedy Act of the Year from Campus Activities Magazine along with nominations for dozens of other awards.

This is a free show for students, families and friends. Get a “shot of reality” September 13. For more information, contact Ana Salgado, student activities coordinator, at 815-835-6432.
