What’s Good This Week in and Around Vancouver
We are well into July, which means into the second half of the year! Time is flying by this summer. Last week’s Deighton Cup was a grand success and this week we are heading to a White Caps Game, Vancouver Theatresports newest show, Firecracker, checking out the newest hot spot in town, Fable on Broadway, and starting a new radio segment on spirits with Joe Leary and TSN1410 with the first recording at Mission with bartender Marc Smolenski. What else is up you ask?
Watch out Vancouver as we light a fuse to Vancouver’s comedy scene – shattering stereotypes and sparking a lot of laughs. Firecracker! features an all-star cast of female improvisers. It’s a different improv experience with an all-female cast, resulting in stories told from a uniquely female perspective. The ensuing comedy is inventive, unpredictable and uproarious.
Through the medium of improv comedy, Firecracker! will explore what it means to be a woman in Vancouver with audience suggestions inspiring the improvisers’ wicked wit. The inaugural 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 performances.
