What is Improv?

Improv stands for improvisation. Improv theatre is based upon a wide variety of games and exercises in which the actors must make it up as they go along. A group might be given, for example, a series of elements (say a comb, a nut cracker and a volleyball net) that must be incorporated in a story. They then act it out spontaneously with no planning. The actors have to think on their feet and respond appropriately to what the others are doing and saying. Improv is great fun to do and hilarious to watch.

Laughter is indeed, the best medicine!

Laughing Gas Improv Troupe is Shuswap Theatre’s performing improv group and specializes in the art of unscripted comedy and improvised performance, at really cheap prices! The troupe is completely self-directed, with a strong sense of play, and a keen commitment to making their audiences laugh til the tears run down their legs.
3 seasonal shows Sat. Nov 15, Sat. Mar. 14 and Sat. June 20. Beer and wine are served and it’s a fun adult night out.  
Laughing Gas is also available for hire!
Tickets will be available online, at our ticket seller and at the door – $9.00 + ticket fee
