Stick Horses in Pants in the Independent

Stick Horses in Pants were featured in the Independent yesterday. From the article:

A group of friends formed Stick Horses in Pants in 2004 and since then, they've steadily built a reputation. They have a monthly show at the Colorado Springs School.

SHiP's performance at the Colorado Springs School is funny, and although their crowd isn't as diverse as for Improv Colorado downtown, they're more polished and comfortable on stage. Their teamwork is unmistakable — several times during their show, members who aren't part of a scene will burst onstage to "rescue" a fellow player. This, according to Hunter Willis, one of SHiP's co-founders, is what sets Stick Horses in Pants apart.

"We spend a lot of time together outside of practice," says Willis. "We've built friendships and connections so when we're on stage together, we're more in tune with each other and how we might react to certain situations."

This weekend is the SHiP-RiP Throwdown: June 6 and 7, at 8p.m., Studio 515, 515 Manitou Avenue. Come early for a good seat!
