A Magical Journey & How the Light Gets In

A Magical Journey: A magically improvised music theatre that takes you to a place where only the imagination sets the boundaries. Bring your whole family and enjoy improvised songs, great magic and a magical journey! Featuring the Festival Ensemble.

FRIDAY APRIL 27TH
Hidden Motives & Backstory

Hidden Motives: A full-length contemporary improvised play where everything is driven by mantras provided by the audience. Watch as the hidden motives of the improvisers, lead them into an unknowable story. Featuring the Festival Ensemble.
- Directed by 4and20 Improv (U.S.A.)

Backstory: A chaotic, improvised heist-thriller played backwards! As an audience member you will give us suggestions that will shape the mysterious final scene that will set in motion a mind-bending journey backwards in time to the final beginning. Watch as this dramatic crime story unfolds piece by piece. A dark puzzling tale of violence, money, trust and betrayal… A fast paced show that will have you on the edge of your seat, asking what will happen next… or rather, what has happened before? Featuring GBG Improv.

SATURDAY APRIL 28TH
Double Exposure & CONSPIRACY

Double Exposure:
This innovative piece of improvisation features the entire ensemble on stage as often as possible. 2 heads are better than 1, 8 heads are better than 2. Featuring the Festival Ensemble.
- Directed by Amy Shostak (Canada)

CONSPIRACY: It’s the 1970s, and something is very wrong. Shadow corporations! Rogue government agents! Foreign actors! Enter the unsettling world of Conspiracy... This unscripted play will take you on a journey through small towns turned bad, illegal laboratories, secret societies and all the way to the top: to a place where truth is a luxury that only the powerful can afford! Who's pulling the strings? Who's watching who? How far does the conspiracy go? And is anyone safe? Featuring 4and20 Improv.
