School Shows

On average, VTSL visits between 50 to 100 schools a year with shows specially designed for student audiences.

Our school touring company includes three performers plus a stage manager.


Instant Improv

Improvised sketch comedy at its very best. The audience provides the inspiration in the form of suggestions, and the improvisers provide the entertainment in the form of hilarious improvised scenes. Instant Improv allows the audience to see their ideas instantly transformed into reality. Whether reconstructing the story of an audience member’s first day at school or a recess mishap, each Instant Improv performance is as unique as its audience.

For audiences grades K-12.

Improv Tales

An improvised story-tale where the main performers in this show are the students! Two improvisers narrate and guide the story and build a stellar cast from the audience. The participants will also supply audience suggestions and sound effects that will be incorporated into the stories. The improvisers travel with an array of costume pieces that the participants can wear, as they become immersed in the land of make believe and improv.

For audiences grades K-7.

They were absolutely brilliant, age-appropriate, hilariously funny, and just what we expected. Thanks for lining this up for us. Only feedback - the kids wanted more!!!

Glanford Middle School

VTSL arranged for four amazing performers to come out to the school we were billeting at in Coquitlam...That’s what experiences like this can do; they open you up to opportunities you didn’t recognize you had.
