We all need to laugh.; to take the edge off our day; from work, family, friends, scratches on your new car, the ketchup stain on your new shirt or blouse. Why not laugh with the Vancouver Theatre Sports League? They have an upcoming series called “Improv Mondays with Michelle“. Give it a try! Here is some info about this new improv show. Enjoy!
You’ve fallen in love with her on YouTube and now the indomitable Michelle Gidard (played by VTS ensemble member Angela Galanopoulos) is coming to the live stage. Starting Monday, May 6th Vancouver TheatreSports will present Improv Mondays with Michelle – Fake Stories, Real Improvisers hosted by the character Michelle from the popular web comedic soap opera Michelle’s.
The original web series, created by Galanopoulos and fellow VTS ensemble member Andrew Barber, is set in the mythical restaurant Michelle’s in Hope. The VTS show diverges from the original concept as each performance is not necessarily set in Hope – the locations and contents of each story will vary dependent on audience input. What will be consistent is that all will be over-the-top funny with the larger-than-life Michelle in charge. The first half of the show consists of short-form scenarios and the second half of the show will be a mini soap opera – all based on audience contributions. Each scene’s comedic melodrama will be enhanced by live musical underscoring by pianist Matt Grinke.
