The show started with a lively performance by Union Highway. The band was full of heart and soul, performing covers of Adele, LAUV, Lana Del Ray, and other pop artists. Their unified sound and rotating lead vocals engaged the audience during their thirty minute set.

Following the cover music was the Snow College improv group, Let Them Improvise (LTI). The group employed many animated antics to solicit laughter from the audience. The team performed different, on the spot sketches from simple prompts. The use of puns and physical humor was a commonality with their group.

Last to perform was the blossoming comedic talents of Brett Blackham, master of ceremonies and coordinator of the event. Blackham explained that the show title was not only named for the three acts performing, but for the fact that he is a Triple Threat performer: he can act, sing, and stay up all night without using drugs. His slot was full of reminiscent yet ironic commentary on life in a small town. The crowd responded to Blackham’s “dad jokes” with exasperated chuckles, while still enjoying the story style of his standup comedy.

The night’s showcase of the diverse talent within the local community of Ephraim showed how much more the citizens and students have to offer.
