The Impromaniacs open up - “Found Objects" lets improvisers be themselves.

VICTORIA – The Impromaniacs, Victoria’s premiere improvisational theatre company, are going to share a little bit of themselves in their monthly Victoria Event Centre Show. Their November show will be “Found Objects”, created by Randy Dixon of Unexpected Productions in Seattle.

“Some folks will remember that Found Objects was our centrepiece of the Victoria International Improv Festival last year,” noted Performance Director Morgan Cranny. “We received such a great reaction to it, that we’re going to do it again.”

In Found Objects, each performing improviser will be bringing an item that they have a strong personal attachment to. “Whenever we are holding our own object, we have to be ourselves,” explained Production director Clare Jennings. “And there is nothing scarier to an actor than being themselves.”

Showtime will be 7:30 pm at the Victoria Event Centre. Tickets will be $10, and $8 for students and seniors. Tickets will be available at the door. They also can be purchased at Lyle’s Place (770 Yates St.) If you buy your tickets in advance – we’ll give you 3 bucks off!

The Impromaniacs gratefully acknowledge Randy Dixon of Unexpected Productions in Seattle for his creation of Found Objects, and letting us perform it.
