Whistling Kettle – Improve for Fun

Who wants to come out and do some improv for fun? Practice your improv skills with friendly, supportive folks who like to get up and perform, share the stage, and share the limelight! Practice on-the-spot collaboration working as a team with one or two others to build a short scene. Improv for Fun is for everyone who likes to improvise and perform. In this improv group, we are all teachers, we are all students, and we are all winners (even if you sometimes feel like a total loser!). Join us – drop-in and give it a go. Bring your enthusiasm, energy, and funny bones.

Every other Tuesday (February 5 & 19, March 4 & 18, and April 1) from 6:30 – 8:00pm.

Where: Upstairs Multi-Purpose Room, Fernwood Community Centre, 1240 Gladstone Avenue

Room Limit 12. Reserve your spot by sending a text message or phoning Whistling Kettle at 250-891-3959 on the day of the jam, any time after noon.
