Hand-crafted improvised theatre.

Take a detour

Discover the joy of disposable theatre!

We are a group of experienced improvisers, new to Kitchener, Ontario. Our goal is to explore and demonstrate the connections between improvised theatre and our daily lives.

Through live performances, dynamic workshops, and community outreach, we aim to entertain, foster playful curiosity, and build skills and confidence among our members, our audience, and our community.
