Act 1: Holiday Radio Play: It’s an Okay Life, Considering

Watch someone’s life transformed this holiday season! This unique show takes its cue from the radio plays popularized in the 1930s and 40s, and from the magic of Frank Capra’s classic film It’s a Wonderful Life.

This completely improvised radio play features live actors, made up stories, improvised product sponsor ads, and live music and sound effects!

Featuring live performances from Mandy Morris and her jazz quartet! Produced in partnership with CJSW. Act 1 is family-friendly.

 

Act 2: Group Chat feat. Vlad & Vicky

  • Are you perpetually glued to your phone?
  • Do you create insurmountable barriers to your interpersonal communication skills?
  • Are you unable to form intimate connections the old-fashioned way?

Same! Group Chat is a troupe of tech-savvy artists who perform improv inspired by your favourite social media platforms – from the trending Tweets to Skype calls with your mom!

Watch these Millennials cope with crushing debt and imminent ecological disaster by laughing at the absurdity of our modern existence!

Tickets for this very special show are $15 each. Students 2-for-1 at the door, with student ID.

Online sales end at 6pm day of the show. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door – we open at 7:30pm.

Saturday December 21, 8:00 PM-9:00 PM

Hang your stockings with care and put out the decorative bowl of Peeps brand Gingerbread Men just for Grandma… It’s a spectacular and touching Very Special Holiday Episode of APT 33.

See what happens when two man-children in their thirties set out to learn the true reason for the season while attempting to host a kid’s show for adults from their apartment. 

  • Will they learn enough to pay the Rent?
  • Will their pet Fish be arrested for tax evasion?
  • Will they remember to make that important phone call?

Treat yo’ self to the answers to these questions, and more. There will be top-notch guests, comedy, existential quandaries, songs about snacks, hats, games, Satchels, and festive surprises! It’s a late night fever dream come true that’s sure to lift your spirits!

Act 1: Improv! The Musical

Gotta sing? Gotta dance? Then you gotta join us for a fully improvised musical show. Our Broadway Babies will get your heart racing so you’ll think you’re in La La Land. If you love the Sound of Music, and catch yourself Singin’ in the Rain, you won’t want to miss these improvisers and their super cool accompanist making up songs and stories and All That Jazz.

Act 2: All Request Heartache feat. TBD

All Request Heartache is an improvised love story inspired by your achy-breaky song requests: “your song” while you were wooing each other, the first dance at your wedding, or the song you listened to on endless repeat after a breakup. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, or maybe you’re crying cause you’re laughing so hard.

This two-act show runs from 8pm to 10pm with a brief intermission.

Tickets are $12 online or $15 at the door.

Online sales end at 6pm day of the show. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door – we open at 7:30pm.

Act 1: Clue: Improv Edition

A show that’ll kill, but whodunnit and how? The improviser. In the theatre. With the mimed prop.

The classic board game comes to life in an improvised murder mystery other shows can’t hold a candlestick to. Six colourful characters with suspect motives, all gunning for the true killer’s confession. You could cut the tension with a knife.

Pipe up with clues to help solve the crime. You’ll get so roped in you can’t wrench out of your seat.

Act 2: DuckFace feat. Conservatory

Three improvisers take you on an intimate look at urban ennui through the use of characters, locations, and time. Mostly hilarious, sometimes touching, sometimes silly, sometimes honest, sometimes weird, this show always ventures to find the core of the human malaise.
