Oakville Improv just received a significant grant from the Town of Oakville through the Oakville Arts Council. We’re so grateful for the constant support of our Town and the jury of our peers for supporting not just the art form of improvisation, but the children and adults that benefit from participating in our workshop and the audience that benefits from the creative daring fun during our shows. Thanks everyone for your patronage. Here’s to our tenth anniversary and many more from here.

Join us on February 25th as we come in the the home stretch in the 10th Anniversary Tournament: Control Top Underpants vs Fake Nudes and Women’s Improv Network vs Adult’s Only. CTU coming in with veteran Lea Wilkening, feeling like her improv is a little rusty but not even breaking a sweat. Fake Nudes squeaked past It’s Tea Time with David Raitt as guest and now Bob Kapur comes back with pressure ON. Women’s Improv Network has FIVE team members and has to keep the ask fors sorted out, at the very least, and Adult’s Only has the youngest player in the Tournament – 13yrs – not too shabby! Check it out at QEPCCC’s Music Room #1, 8pm. It’s free, after the drop in workshop at 7pm ($5 per person, everyone welcome).

Adults Only: Eric Dolansky, Sofia Muhleisen and Paul Muhleisen

Women’s Improv Network (WIN) l-r: Terri Skov, Shann McGrail, Kim Beaune, Lynnae Dudley, Carolyn Endacott

None of these people are David Raitt

Catherine Henry, Christine Pillman, Lea Wilkening and Natasha Bromfield (Hair by Wigs International)

THE FOUR TOP TEAMS.

(Wild card entries will be announced March 4th! BE THERE!)
