The Brigham Young University Department of Theatre and Media Arts will sponsor two performances by Divine Comedy, BYU's comedy improv troupe featuring both current and alumni members, Friday, Aug. 14, at 8 p.m. and Saturday, Aug. 15, at 7 and 9 p.m. in room 151 of the N. Eldon Tanner Building.
Tickets are $5 when purchased in advance at the Wilkinson Student Center Information Desk or $6 at the door.
The performances will benefit the Utah Alliance of Ouelessebougou, a non-profit organization which works cooperatively with villagers in Ouelessebougou and the surrounding region in Mali, West Africa.
Founded in 1985 by a group of Utah community leaders concerned about the drought in North Africa, the Alliance is structured to give individuals, foundations and corporations the opportunity to serve a specific African community, knowing that their assistance was going directly to those in need.
