The Improv Centre
× Dedicated to school days, Back to School TheatreSports takes classic TheatreSports short form improv ‘games’ and adapts them to parody classroom clichés and cliques (some things never change). Instead of the traditional TheatreSports referee, the action will be overseen by a very stern Principal. Scenarios may see a team of Nerds vie against Jocks or Cool Kids against Academics for instance. Rule infractions will result in player ‘detentions.’

Mixed Improv Arts Thursday September 27 2018 at 9:15 PM

The Improv Centre
× In this winner-takes-all contest you won’t see a ‘Peruvian necktie’ or a ‘Rubber guard’ but you will see opponents face off in a fierce competition of wits for who can win the most laughs. In MIA, two Improv Directors go head-to-head as they put a team of improvisers through a set of grueling and hilarious improv formats.
Throughout, as in all VTS improv, the audience is called upon to assist the action with their suggestions and shouted encouragement. No one knows what will happen next in these edge-of-your-seat matches.

WTF - What the Fun! Friday September 28 2018 at 11:15 PM

The Improv Centre
× End your week with laughs at WTF – What the Fun! With the aid of audience suggestions, WTF takes its inspiration from the quirky stories found in the weekly news and on-line. Recent gems found on the news wires include: “Fish fall from the sky in Northern Mexico,” “Shark nearly chokes to death on moose, is saved by Canadian bystanders,” and “Goat refuses to leave Sask. Tim Hortons, gets ‘arrested’ by RCMP.” Part of the show features ‘re-interpretations’ of fun times had by audience members by adding our own humorous and unpredictable spin to their Instagram photos or written anecdotes. Join us for late night comedy that never sleeps Fridays and Saturdays at 11:15 p.m.
