Improv Mondays with Michelle Monday June 3 2019 at 7:30 PM

The Improv Centre
× You’ve fallen in love with her on You Tube and now the indomitable Michelle Gidard (played by VTS ensemble member Angela Galanopoulos) is coming to the live stage at The Improv Centre. Starting in May, join us on Mondays for Improv Mondays with Michelle – Fake Stories, Real Improvisers hosted by the character Michelle from the popular web comedic soap opera Michelle’s. The original web series, created by Galanopoulos and fellow VTS ensemble member Andrew Barber, is set in the mythical restaurant Michelle’s in Hope. Our show diverges from the original concept as each performance is not necessarily set in Hope or the restaurant. What will be consistent is that all will be over-the-top funny with the larger-than-life Michelle in charge. The first half of the show is comprised of short-form scenarios and the second half of the show will be a mini soap opera – all based on audience contributions. Each scene’s comedic melodrama will be enhanced by live musical underscoring by pianist Matt Grinke.

Please note: We cannot accomodate children under the age of 8 years old, including toddlers and infants in strollers.

Throne and Games - The Last Laugh Thursday June 6 2019 at 7:30 PM

The Improv Centre
× A lonely Queen sits atop the Iron Throne, but her kingdom is under threat from all sides. The final fight between the Lannisters, Starks and Targaryans is about to go down and everyone will probably die - die laughing that is. Throne and Games – The Last Laugh is the final installment in VTS’ parody trilogy that started in 2015.

Loosely based on HBO’s popular TV series, this improv laugh-letting features myriad unexpected plot twists - all suggested by the audience. No two performances can ever be the same because of this key element. Like its TV inspiration, the audience has no idea what to expect next, and, neither do the cast. VTS improvisers are master actors – creating the plot line, developing characters and dialogue all on the spot based on audience involvement and suggestions. It’s this unpredictability that adds to the comedy of every performance. Which of the characters will have the last laugh? Who knows? You’ll have to come and see for yourself to find out.

Please note we cannot accomodate children under the age of 8 years old, including infants and toddlers.

Join us Wednesday nights at 9:15 as our improvisers ‘match up’ to turn the good, the bad and the ludicrous of Vancouver’s dating scene into 60 minutes of side-splitting laughter. Don’t have a date? No problem! Come anyway, you might meet your perfect match at the show. There’s ‘Plenty of Laughs’ to be had by all. This is one instance when swiping right ensures a good time.
