St. Francis College’s Troopers are back and presenting a new show called “Assistance.”

“Assistance” is an official production showing a realistic view of life. It is a modern piece with relatable shenanigans and fun.

The Troupers have been in St. Francis College for years. Encouraging young actors to take the stage, the club motivates students to try new things and step out of their comfort zones.

SFC student Nicholas Barone, President of the Troupers, shares his experience being with the group since his first year.

“It became a personal journey with the Troupers. It feels right. Everyone was looking at me to be the next President,” Barone told SFC Today, “It does help. I feel I earned this.”

The Troupers are continuing to make the club run as efficiently as possible for future members. Old members also come back to help current Troupers with resources.
Priscilla Anselmo, a four-year member of the SFC Troupers, is doing her last performance on stage in “Assistance.”

Being with the club all her college years, she explains the importance of the organization.
Anselmo told SFC Today, “It helps me a lot. It changed who I am. When I first started here I wasn’t interested in acting, but now it is my passion.”
Freshman Kevin Kowalik said, “I’ve always wanted to be in the troopers since I first saw it. It also helps my major in communications. It’s difficult and fun at the same time.”

The show will be held on the seventh floor in Maroney Theater on November 11 and 12. Doors will open at 8pm on Friday, and 1pm and 8pm on Saturday. Tickets are available at the door.
