Laughter is a shared experience that creates strong bonds. When we come together in the spirit of play, we leave more open, happy and connected. This leads to personal fulfillment, professional prosperity and community elevation. We are a team of intensely driven and charming humans with diverse professional and educational backgrounds. We unite to make our community a happier place by applying the tools of improv beyond the theatre.
A SHORT HISTORY OF THE MAKING-BOX
The Making-Box is your hub for improv education and live comedy. Since 2013, we have empowered thousands of individuals and organizations through improv training and delighted many more at our weekly one-of-a-kind live comedy events. In 2016, we were nominated for both Innovation Guelph's Start-Up Of The Year and The Guelph Chamber of Commerce: Community Spirit Award. In 2017, we championed Canada’s most funded theatre Kickstarter and launched Guelph's first storefront comedy theatre and improv education centre. In 2018, we were nominated for Guelph's Community Innovator Award and added a satellite classroom in Kitchener-Waterloo.
With twelve weekly improv classes running in two cities and a client roster that includes some of Canada's top organizations, The Making-Box continuously strives to build community through comedy by using the transformative power of improvisation.
