On the heels of closing Encounters, we’re chomping at the bit for more new work! In the spirit of budding theatre-makers, such as Sydney Hayduk and Fraz Wiest of Encounters, we’re presenting two exciting projects at this Salon. First, we have a fascinating improv format called 50/50 from Montreal Improv brought to us by RobYn Slade of Outside Joke , Dungeons and Dragons Improv and Common Crow Improv Co.. The format pairs actors and improvisers in two-person scenes. The actor is given only their lines from the scene, and must stick to the script; the improviser is given nothing! Our brave improvisers are George Hudson, Andrea del Campo, Lauren Cochrane, Dan Berzenji and Ashley Burdett. Some of the playwrights featured will be Angie StMars and Sharon Bajer, and we can expect the theatrical stylings of Victoria Hill, Christina Heather and Johanna Burdon. Our second treat is more new work from our company-in-residence, Make/Shift Theatre, fresh off of a writing retreat! Musical guests are Roger Roger, recent West End Cultural Centre sell-outs with their album release.
Join us at 7pm at the Times Changed. Doors open at 6pm, so come early for warmth, drinks and delicious tex-mex treats. Admission is free for Season Passholders and by donation for civilians.
