Direct from Ringside at Shuswap Theatre – The Battle of Two Lakes Improv Games

Saturday, June 20 Laughing Gas Improv representing Shuswap Lake (Salmon Arm) and Monkey With a Button representing Swan Lake (Vernon) will compete in hilarious rounds of improv games with the audience as the judges.

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. The result will be the ache in your sides from laughing so hard.

This show will be in memory of founding Laughing Gas Troupe member, Patrick Allwood, who passed away on May 20 – who will be remembered for his wonderful laugh and characters.

Saturday, June 20 7:30pm (doors open at 6:30pm with No Host Beer and Wine available before the show and at intermission) Rated Mature – ages 16 and over.  Tickets are $9 and available online or at Intwined Fibre Arts on Hudson Ave., Salmon Arm or at the door. Shuswap Theatre, 41 Hudson Ave. NW, Salmon Arm
