Under the direction of improviser and storyteller Dave Morris, The Paper Street Theatre co. creates improvisation that feels like theatre. By studying great playwrights, and theatrical styles then performing them with no script, our ensemble sets out to change what people often perceive improvisation to be. Some of what we do may be comedy, but first it will be theatre.
Paper Street Theatre has been featured at Festivals around the world, including Vancouver, London, Romania, Amsterdam, and more. They have won multiple awards for their innovative style of improvisation.
One of our favourite shows to do every summer is back, and this time with an extended run; Yes and Yesteryear: An Improvised Jane Austen at the Emily Carr House. It's a lovely evening spent in the garden of the Emily Carr House, drinking lemonade, eating cucumber sandwiches, and watching some delightful improvised theatre.
And of course, as always, we have more in-person classes starting in June – See what classes are available and sign up today.
