And you thought your family was weird.

VICTORIA - On Thursday, April 13th the Impromaniacs, Victoria's longest running improv ensemble, start their all-ages show in a typical family portrait pose, and let the mayhem ensue from there.

"In family portraits everyone looks sweet and happy and like they like one another." says Impromaniacs performer Briana Rayner. "They mask the madness that lies within."

In this long form, the ensemble will take a suggestion from the audience and tells the story of the family they create.

"We can end up with weird uncles, dodgy kids, and deranged cousins, " says Managing Director Jonathan Argue. "It's just like real life."

Before launching into the chaos of family life, the performers will bring you short scenes and theatre games. Either way they'll bring you laughter, just don't forget to be on your best behaviour and say "cheese".

Where: Victoria Event Centre, 1415 Broad Street – right across from the A-Channel
