To celebrate its fourth year, instead of bringing in four companies, the Paper Street Theatre Improv Festival is bringing in four directors.
This year’s festival features the Four Corners Collective: artistic directors from improv companies in Calgary, Red Deer, Victoria and Portland. Plus, a powerhouse ensemble of improvisers from around the Pacific Northwest including Calgary, Red Deer, Vancouver, Bellingham, and Portland! Each night audiences will enjoy ensemble shows directed by the Four Corners as well as feature sets by these accomplished artistic directors. Get ready for an exciting week of improv that feels like theatre.
The Four Corners are: Owen Chan, Jenna Goldade, Domeka Parker, and Victoria’s own, Dave Morris
Get your tickets today, and see below for schedule.
