Grosse Pointe South High School’s Destination Imagination team captured first place in Change in Realitee, the senior-level improvisation challenge, at the state affiliate finals April 20, at Central Michigan University.

In winning the challenge, the team advances to the Global Finals May 22 to 25, in Knoxville, Tenn.

South’s team — and others in the competition — had six minutes to prepare a five-minute skit about a previously unknown dramatic change and three other improv elements. They started practicing improv skills in October, team manager Kristin Beardslee said, playing through a variety of games requiring quick thinking and teamwork.

Leading up to the Global Finals, the team is fundraising, accepting donations through the Grosse Pointe Foundation for Public Education. Donations are tax-deductible.

To donate, send check, made payable to the Grosse Pointe Foundation for Public Education, to 829 Balfour, Grosse Pointe Park, MI 48230.

The South team, pictured above left, includes, Rachel Griffin and Grace Henning, Alex Hoffman, Jack McCoy and Kelly Beardslee.

Bonnie McCoy, Charlotte Sabino and Beardslee are team managers.
