Firecracker! Explodes on Improv Scene
Watch out Vancouver as Vancouver TheatreSports™ (VTSL) lights a fuse to Vancouver’s improv comedy scene shattering that it is presently, a male-dominated art form. We’ve got 2 sets of tickets for this giveaway, one for July 21, with the one and only Rebecca Bollwitt on stage, and one for July 28, when I, yes, I, Cassandra Anderton, will be on stage (if I don’t faint first).
Starting Thursday, July 21 and running every Thursday evening at 9:15 p.m., VTSL presents Firecracker – Dynamite ladies. Explosive comedy. “One of VTSL’s mandates is to increase the diversity in our company, and in the improv world,” states Executive Director Jay Ono. “I am very proud of the fact that VTSL’s ensemble includes very strong female improvisers. In addition, almost 50 percent of our Rookie League and Improv Comedy Institute (ICI) are women. This is an exciting time for the development of the art form thanks to these amazing improvisers – they rank among the best anywhere.”
Through the medium of improv comedy, Firecracker! will explore what it means to be a woman in Vancouver. Themes such as dating and romance, career and work/life balance, female friendships and body image will all be examined through the audience suggestions motivating the improvisers’ wicked wit.
The first three shows will honour a special female guest whose stories of their life, work and achievements will inspire the performance. We are delighted to have the following guests join us for these inaugural shows.
- July 21: Rebecca Bollwitt – Miss 604, Blogger/Social Media Maven,
- July 28: Cassandra Anderton – Good Life Vancouver, Wine/Food Writer, Life-style Commentator
- August 4: Briana Buckmaster – Actress, Sheriff Donna on Supernatural
