Performance Notes

× 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.
