The Impromaniacs hit Vancouver to participate in Vancouver TheatreSport League's 17th annual St. Valentines Day Massacre. Jonathan Argue and Don Tom where able to make it over for this event. Joining Don (or "Bill" as his team captain, Jonathan, introduced him on the first night - by mistake!!) and Jonathan are "Victorians" Michael Teigen and Scott Owen - both a long time VTSL players - nice guys to boot!

"It's been a wild ride so far," says Argue, "but we're learning lots and having fun!".

Stay tuned for the pictures...
