CATCH A NEW IMPROVISED MOVIE AT EVERY PERFORMANCE AT THE VANCOUVER THEATRESPORTS LEAGUE’S SUMMER SMASH HIT
Love summer movie season but can’t decide between Independence Day and Star Trek?
Well now you can experience all your favourite movies in one hilarious mashup, as the Vancouver TheatreSports League pays tribute to the summer blockbuster with The Big Picture – An Improvised Movie.
The first half of the evening sees the audience make/scream suggestions to determine the genre of the yet-to-be-made ‘movie’ (e.g., action, horror, western, sci-fi, adventure, romantic comedy) along with other elements such as the characters, location and plot components.
The second half of the show sees the ensemble improvise a performance of the film utilizing the suggestions from the first half. Yell out your favourite movie characters, or make new favourites as the performers improvise roles like a cowboy who’s afraid of horses or ‘beer girl’ (of course that was when we were there, every evening will be different).
Will Dory find Jaws? Will Princess Leia and Captain Kirk hit it off? There’s only one show where you can find out …
