Four comedians will headline this year’s line-up of talent, while select members of the robotics team will launch their own acting debut in a skit written and directed by Dave Brooks.
This year’s comedy line-up features Mitch Stinson, a former aircraft-carrier aviator with an insight into the transition from hot-shot Navy pilot to everyday civilian life; Chris Pennie, a lifelong bachelor and full-time single dad who’s finding humor in every day life; Taylor Connelly, who has built his comedy career our of his Irish Catholic roots; and Jimmy Whitman, who offers a laid-back comedy style.
A bake sale and silent auction will also be held during the event.
Souhegan’s FIRST Robotics Team, called Entropy 138 participates in a national robotics tournament operated by US FIRST in which teams of high school-aged youth design and build robots to complete a set of prescribed tasks. The project combines computer programming, mechanical engineering, and electrical engineering into a team-based competition.
