Murder on the Improv Express Friday June 29 2018 at 7:30 PM

The Improv Centre
× Picture this - a luxury train trapped in the Canadian Rockies with a passenger list that includes a prominent socialite, a retired military officer and a famous detective, and oh yes, there’s a corpse. What you have are the makings of a classic murder mystery. Welcome to Murder on the Improv Express – A Killer Comedy.

As in countless whodunnits, this one is set in the 1930’s and involves many of the set characters and scenarios you’d expect to find. However, what isn’t known is who is the victim, who is the killer and how the dastardly deed was done. These are just some of the things that will be established by audience suggestions during the course of the show. What is known is that audience members will die laughing at all the improbable plot twists and turns.

Avocado Toast Thursday July 5 2018 at 7:30 PM

The Improv Centre
× Vancouver is known internationally for its spectacular beauty, friendly citizens and vibrant multi-cultural milieu. Beneath the glossy surface lies a complicated and eccentric city ripe for parody. In a series of vignettes VTS’s quick-witted improvisers lampoon such local stereotypes as our obsession with fitness (Grouse Grind and yoga anyone?), quirky neighbourhoods (The Drive, Main St., Kits, Gastown), and foodie scene (coffee culture, craft breweries/distilleries, avocado toast) that have earned Vancouver its ‘Lotus Land’ nickname. Our ‘wet coast’ winters, burgeoning bike lanes, ‘affordable’ housing and hipsters are only a few more entertaining and endless comedic inspirations. As in all VTS shows, the plot, characters and action are co-developed with the audience - utilizing their suggestions to drive the action and create on-the-spot, unscripted, theatrically-infused comedy.

× 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.
