An improv show that brings your objects to life!
Animated! pays homage to the world of Pixar by creating a fully improvised animated movie. Each show is inspired by an everyday object that the audience wants to see brought to life onstage. From the audience suggestion, the cast creates a detailed imaginary world where these inanimate objects move and speak and have a life of their own. Every show is a different adventure, always following our heroes as they work together to overcome the "bad guys" threatening them. Along the way they encounter obstacles, meet new friends, and discover what makes them unique.
Want to know how your kitchen utensils would act if they came to life? What your attic full of old clothes would say? What adventures the tools in your garage would have? Inspired by the objects YOU want to see and featuring a cast of professional players and talented teen improvisers who have come up through our Academy program. With big characters, engaging stories, and jokes for kids and adults, this show is sure to entertain.
Directed by Nicole Passmore (Bad Dog Theatre Company, Second City HouseCo), starring Leigh Cameron (Second City Mainstage, Epic Bedtime), Alastair Forbes (Second City Mainstage, Bonspiel!), Liz Johnston (Bad Dog Theatre Company, The Show Show), Kirsten Rasmussen (This Hour Has 22 Minutes, Second City Mainstage), Kris Siddiqi (Baroness Von Sketch Show, Canadian Comedy Award Best Male Improviser), Christian Smith (Soul Decision, Second City HouseCo), and a stellar up-and-coming cast drawn from Bad Dog's Youth Academy.
