The Vancouver-based Theatre Sports League is known for staging some of the most daring and innovative improv shows in the world. And when their Instant Improv team takes the stage at the Miner’s Hall this Friday, audiences should be prepared for a family-oriented evening of ‘participatory hilarity’.

Instant Improv is 90 minutes of the type of improvised sketch comedy featured on Drew Carey’s Who’s Line is it Anyway? In fact, two Who’s Line regulars Ryan Stiles and Colin Mochrie are VTSL alumnae.

The Instant Improv team will be given a variety of improvisational challenges and the audience will be asked to add their ideas such as famous characters, emotions, situations, odd locations and even vegetables. Audience participation is an essential part of the fun, and the actors’spontaneity and quick-wittedness can reach awesome heights.

Perfect entertainment for all ages, Instant Improv allows the audience to see their ideas instantly transformed into comic mayhem.

“Rossland Arts Council plans to expand our area of offerings, to enhance the local cultural scene, and bringing more professional theatre to Rossland, with the support from BC Touring Council, is an excellent way to do it” explains David Livingstone, Chair of the Rossland Arts Council.

Instant Improv plays the Rossland Miners Union Hall on Friday March 6, 2009. Doors open at 7:30 pm and the fun begins at 8:00. Youth tickets are $10 and adult tickets are $15. Tickets can be purchased at The Cellar and The Rouge Gallery in Rossland or through the Charles Bailey box office in Trail 1-866-368-9669.
