Welcome to the Oakville Improv Theatre Company

Oakville Improv is a theatre company based in Oakville, Ontario. We focus on improvised comedy – that’s where dialogue is invented on the spot, often from audience suggestions. Our focus is local, but we welcome audiences from all over the world. We also welcome performers of all levels, from curious first-timers to professional actors. Join us!
