Stevie Ray in 'High School Clix' at Phipps
"High School Clix," written and performed by Stevie Ray and Michael Erickson, will debut June 5-28 at The Phipps Center for the Arts.
"High School Clix" is an original comedy with music and audience interaction that will take audience members back to their high school days. The audience will be divided into cliques and will behave as that clique throughout the show.
Ray, the founder and director of Stevie Ray's Improv Company in Minneapolis, has performed with Paula Poundstone, Rich Hall from "Saturday Night Live," Marsha Warfield of "Night Court" and has opened for "Weird Al" Yankovick at the State Theatre in Minneapolis. Ray also starred in the one-man comedy "The Male Intellect: An Oxymoron" at the Chanhassen Dinner Theatres.
Ray is the only person to design a college degree to study comedy at Minnesota State University-Moorhead. He is also a keynote speaker, a nationally syndicated newspaper columnist, the author of five published books, a beekeeper and a martial artist with four black belts.
"High School Clix" runs June 5-28 on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. (except for June 20), Sundays, June 14 and 28, at 7 p.m., and Sunday, June 21, at 2 p.m. in the Black Box Theater.
