What happens when you assemble Toronto’s most prolific comedic improvisers to create an ongoing episodic story packed with drama, romance, intrigue and betrayal? You get The Soaps! The Live Improvised Soap Opera. Armed with nothing more than a director, a setting and some unscrupulous characters, the audience is treated to plot twists and passion that even the actors can’t predict. This year we take you to down South- 1980’s style where big money competes with big hair and even bigger hats.
This season we’ve got Lisa Merchant (Train 48), Chris Gibbs (Power of Ignorance, Carnegie Hall Show), Christy Bruce (Broadway, Orphan Black), Aurora Browne (Second City, Comedy Inc.), Lindsay Mullan (Disney, Truth or Dare), Conor Bradbury (Sex T-Rex), Jess Bryson (Bad Dog, Instant Theatre Vancouver), Nigel Downer (Second City, Scars), Thomas MacKay (Bad Dog, The Harold), and Gavin Williams (Bad Dog, Loose Moose Theatre) plus amazing guests each week!
