Improv army invades Alberni theatre

Improv is set to go in the Alberni theatre scene.

What do you get when you put a bunch of actors on the Capitol Theatre stage and yell silly things at them?

You get “Whose Line Is It, Alberni”, an evening of silly antics, zany suggestions and a ton of laughs for the whole family.

Hundreds of Albernians have attended this monthly improv comedy event since it began in October and the response is growing. Every month the theme changes, but the laughs keep coming.

“Each month the crowd gets a little bigger,” says improv organizer Ryan Gander.

“What blows me away is the number of young people that are coming now; some of them are here every month.”

Billed as a family evening, “Whose Line Is It, Alberni” is an improv theatresports event, where actors take audience suggestions and turn them into funny scenes off the top of their heads.

The pace is quick and the audience suggestions are often as amusing as the actors’ quips.

The next “Whose Line Is It, Alberni” is Thursday, March 24. The curtain goes up at 7 p.m. and the action usually wraps up around 9 p.m.

Admission is only $5 at the door. For more information search for our Facebook page: “PA Improv”, or contact the box office at 250-723-1195.
