Friday Night Live

Friday Night Live has been an IWU tradition for the past twenty-four years. The goal of the show is to provide a break from stress to not only the students, but the faculty and surrounding community of IWU and Marion. The cast finds meaning in fighting a war on stress, by laughing about life through cleverly written sketches and silly videos. Come to this event for a night of fun, laughter and no stress.

Guys and Dolls

Set in Damon Runyon's mythical New York City, Guys and Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler Nathan Detroit tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they've been engaged for fourteen years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown, as a result. Guys and Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong.
