8PM • HAROLD • ONE LIONS

Philly Improv Theater's Kristen Schier directs this all-star festival ensemble in one of the best-known improv formats in the world, underscored live on the turntables by Winnipeg's DJ Mama Cutsworth!

What if Samuel Beckett wrote his absurdist masterpiece Waiting for Godot on the back of a cocktail napkin an hour before showtime? What if he cast two knuckleheaded improvisors instead of real actors? This should give you some sense of what to expect when Calgary's One Lions presents Waiting for [Blank].


9:30PM • PREACH + HOOKUP

PREACH! combines spoken word and longform improvisation and is your new favourite Chicago troupe.

Want to know what it would be like to date that charming stranger sitting next to you? Bad Dog's smash hit HOOKUP takes the lives, likes and dislikes, turn-ons and turn-offs of two random audience members and turns them into a fully improvised romantic comedy. Paul Bates directs this festival presentation featuring a mix of original cast members and international guests.

11PM • THE PARTY SHOW

One part improv, shaken over alcohol, with a splash of music, served up as ONE BIG PARTY! #THEPARTYSHOWTO.  Featuring Matt Folliott, Coko Galore, Kyah Green, Tom Hearn, Daphney Joseph, Kirsten Rasmussen and international festival guests including Winnipeg's world-renowned DJ Mama Cutsworth.

12PM • KARAOKE

Time for YOU to get on stage! Join us for a song... or five...
