Actors Nightmare: Half Script, Half Improv, All Comedy!
May
27
9:00 PM21:00

Actors Nightmare: Half Script, Half Improv, All Comedy!

Every actor has a nightmare where they find themselves on stage without knowing any of their lines, or even having read the script! The Actor's Nightmare brings this to life, pairing a guest actor who has completely memorized their lines from a play—and will stick to those lines no matter what—with an improviser who not only hasn’t memorized any lines, but will have no idea what play they’re even in.

Six actor/improviser pairings. Six wild and crazy mashed up scenes from five different plays—which, thanks to the talented improvisers and actors, will somehow make total sense! The Actor’s Nightmare is a hilarious high wire act, a head on collision of theatre and improv that will leave you breathless!

Tickets $10 at the door, $7 with receipt from Havana or in advance here!

By FRANCES GOODRICH & ALBERT HACKETT, newly adapted by WENDY KESSELMAN | In this transcendently powerful new adaptation Anne Frank emerges as a living, lyrical, intensely gifted young girl who confronts her rapidly changing life and the increasing horror of her time with astonishing honesty, wit and determination. An impassioned drama about the lives of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a concealed storage attic, The Diary of Anne Frank captures the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence – their fear, their hope, their laughter and their grief.

Each year, as part of Verses, the best slam poets from across Canada come to Vancouver to compete in the Canadian Individual Slam Championship (CIPS). Sanctioned by SpoCan (the governing body of poetry slam in Canada). CIPS determines the nation’s best individual slam poet. Verses aims to serve this national community by staging CIPS in a way that ensures fairness and raises the profile of the slam movement in Canada.
