GLBTF

More Information

The Rend Lake College LGBTQA club was initiated by a former student who saw a lack of organized support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered students, and allies of those groups. The club is striving to raise awareness of LGBTQA issues, such as discrimination and bullying, establish 'safe places' on campus, and provide an outlet where students can meet other students in the gay community. The club has had a Facebook group to allow students to communicate about issues or to promote events for the LGBTQA community in the Rend Lake College area. The club has participated in Fun Fest and hopes to continue participation in other campus activities and community activities.

The RLC Thespians practice a form of acting called Comedy Improvisation. They perform the same kind of quick-thinking acting exercises as seen on television's "Who's Line is it Anyway," as well as the exercises "Second City" school of Improvisational acting has mastered. This sort of acting led to the popular Saturday Night Live television series, still running since the 1970s!  Each January, the RLC Thespians host a night of comedy free to the general public.  This night usually takes place the last Thursday in January and begins at 7 p.m. and lasts about an hour in length.  The Thespians encourage audience participation in all the improvisational games played.

The Thespians also rehearse written scripts and perform skits based on current events or issues that teach lessons. Each spring, the Thespians perform the children’s play, “Flummoxed Fairy Tales” for community grade schools.  Club meetings take place each Friday in the theatre from 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.  To become a Thespian, you have to be a current RLC student (full or part-time) and regularly attend club meetings throughout the school year.
