Lincoln's Security Detail & President Carter's Patrol

The Department of Theatre is proud to host two improv troupes:

Lincoln's Security Detail (LSD) is our long-form troupe. Like teams at Chicago's improv Olympic theatre, they learn how to riff for 20-minutes on a single suggestion. They compete each year in the College Improv Tournament in Chicago.

President Carter's Patrol (PCP) is our short-form and sketch troupe. They focus on games, such as you would see on Whose Line Is It Anyway? And sketches, such as those performed at The Second City.

Each year, we hold workshops for interested students and auditions for new members. The troupes rehearse weekly and perform joint shows regularly on campus. It's a different trip every time….

Keep an eye out on our Facebook page to find out when the next show is happening. If you're interested in getting involved, contact the improv coach, Nancy Taylor Porter (; 245-3433)
