LSS students ready for improv

Would you have the chutzpah to step onto a stage without a script

Would you have the chutzpah to step onto a stage without a script, and make up your comedy on the fly?

That’s what a group of Ladysmith Secondary students, fresh from Improv Camp, are going to do in Improvable, starting Thursday Nov. 12, and in unrepeatable performances Nov. 13 and 14, then again from Nov. 19 to 21.

All shows are $10, $8 for students. Tickets are available at the LSS front office, Salamander Books, or if you like to be spontaneous, at the door.

“Improv is fueled by audience suggestions,” said LSS teacher Natasha Sharpe.

“Teams will ask the audience to come up with a location, object, or character trait – then watch as the  performers tell epic stories based on those suggestions.”

Sound like building a railroad at the same time as you’re riding in Casey Jones’ loco-motive?

Then you haven’t quite got the idea. It’s more like building a railroad over the Grande Canyon while you’re riding on it, and a bunch of rowdy passengers are offering contradictory advice about which way you should or should not go.

In short, a lot of fun.
