IMPROV WITH THE MAKING-BOX

Canada's improv community is flourishing and there’s a reason. Improv is an incredible communication tool and the most fun. It’s not just for actors or comedians, our classes are filled with people from many walks of life; elementary school teachers, veterinary students, managers and even solar panel installers. Improv training is a life-skill, a business-skill and an absolute joy.

Once every year we hold an audition to find Guelph’s best up and coming improvisers. This ensemble enters into an intense improv bootcamp. They rehearse together, receive training from Canada’s best improv teachers on a weekly basis and have the opportunity to perform in our flag-ship improv show Royal City Heroes, additional live comedy events in house and beyond. It’s a serious commitment and that’s the point. 

Fancy yourself a skilled and committed improviser looking to continue growing your craft? Auditions happen annually in September. Learn details from our Improv Incubator Director.
