The Impromaniacs Present: AS THE LEAVES TURN

VICTORIA – The Impromaniacs, Victoria’s original Improv Company, are thrilled to bring you AS THE LEAVES TURN, FT. DAVE MORRIS IS A STORY TELLER!, at the Victoria Event Centre, 1415 Broad Street on Thursday, September 18th at 8:00 pm.

The Impromaniacs are extremely excited to present a very special evening of improvised theatre featuring special guest DAVE MORRIS all the way from far-away Vancouver! As the Impromaniacs last show before the upcoming Victoria International Improv Festival 2008, The Impromaniacs will be presenting a special long form improvised piece, inspired by everyone’s favourite daytime soap operas entitled AS THE LEAVES TURN. The evening will also feature a long form improvised solo performance by DAVE MORRIS IS A STORYTELLER as he weaves his own special blend of folk spun storytelling magic.

AS THE LEAVES TURN, will feature acting so bad it’s good, as The Impromaniacs make live melodrama based on the audience’s suggestions. Come watch as the Impromaniacs expertly weave together the threads of seemingly separate stories in true to form Soap Opera style. Feuds, friendships and Love triangles, squares, pentagons and even possibly hexagons will be formed then shattered as twist after twist will leave the audience shocked and gasping for more. Veteran Vancouver virtuoso improviser Dave Morris will then bring things back down to reality, with a solo improvised performance steeped in the age-old traditions of storytelling that will feature a hearty helping of honesty as Dave Morris creates live improv magic as only he can.
The entire performance will be created before the audience’s eyes, as we take our inspiration from audience suggestions and instantly weave them into improvised stories that are sure to delight! We've got something for everyone! Bring the whole family (and your best suggestions) out for this evening of great live entertainment featuring The Impromaniacs and special guest DAVE MORRIS IS A STORYTELLER.
