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!
Come Play with Us!
Laughing Gas Improv is setting up play dates for those of you that would like to try your hand (or foot!) at Improv – or maybe refresh your skills!
For one hour, from 7:30 – 8:30pm on the third Monday of every month, anyone age 18 and over can drop into Laughing Gas’ Improv practises and have some fun. You won’t even realize you are learning something! (After we play, the Laughing Gas gang will close the doors for a private ‘troupe only’ practise.) This is a great way to have fun and learn without the burden of public performance.
There is no cost to join us, but we do ask that all participants be members of Shuswap Theatre. Become a member.
Here is a schedule of play group dates:
• Mon. Jan. 19 – 7:30 – 8:30pm
• Mon. Feb.16 – 7:30 – 8:30pm
• Mon. Mar. 16 – 7:30 – 8:30pm
