Improv, is a form of live theatre in which the plot, characters and dialogue of a scene or story are made up in the moment.
A Lifetime of Regret
The Christmas Shoes
A Lifetime of Regret is a drinking game/trivia challenge/staged reading of some of the best of the worst to ever grace your television screen: Lifetime Channel movies. Each performance is a completely different script brought to life by a talented team of improvisors who have already started one drink ahead of their audience. Yes, it’s technically scripted – but the experience is nothing that anyone can truly prepare for.
This time, we take our first detour from the Lifetime channel, and annoyingly kick off the holiday season way too early and completely ruin the end of your year with a CBC Television classic based off of an overly saccharine yet subtextually problematic song, “The Christmas Shoes.”
Yes, it’s the story of a grumpy workaholic lawyer (played by Rob Lowe), who learns the true meaning of Christmas from a young boy buying his mother a pair of shoes. The only price to pay for his revelation and that one pair of shoes? Two women’s lives. Merry Christmas, everyone!!!
Don’t worry, you don’t have to drink to have fun and watch a funny show.
Outside beverages not allowed in the theatre. No one under 18 admitted.

Tales Told by Idiots
Tales Told By Idiots is so much more than your average open mic night – it’s a space to connect with new ideas, art, and terrible anecdotes. Anyone can sign up to share a story, perform a scripted work, sing a song, or play something original. The only catch is, you’ve got a different theme to riff on every night!
This month’s theme is “Journeys”. A journey can be a trek to a far-off destination, or an obstacle riddled walk right down the street. A journey may also be something that we take as an individual, learning to negotiate what it is to be human. Tell us about your journeys!
NOTE FOR SUBMISSIONS:
All those wishing to perform may submit up to two (2) pieces for the evening. Depending on the volume of submissions, only one may be performed. Each piece must be under 5-7 minutes in length. Performers do not pay admission. Please submit the titles of your pieces along with any necessary digital music files to email@example.com.
