Paper Street Theatre Announces 2014-15 Season. Victoria BC.
I have been a fan of Paper Street Theatre since their inception in 2011. In this time, they’ve slowly and steadily grown their following and fan base, originally producing shows over two nights then moving to three and now four nights for a run. In my opinion, it was A Carol for Christmas, a Dickens-themed improvised show in December 2012, that saw the ascendancy of this local troupe. I knew they were on to something when we barely squeezed into the last two seats. Gone were the days of arriving at the door without a ticket, secure in knowing there would be space.
In 2013/2014 they won numerous awards for An Improvised Quentin Tarantino, including Pick of the Fringe at the Victoria Fringe Festival, and the M-Award for Top Original Production.
Be sure to pick up your season’s tickets now to one of the hottest groups in town. In 2014-2015 they are also introducing workshops (I’ve taken classes with Dave Morris and can highly recommend them).
M-Award for Top Original Production, Paper Street Theatre is back with its fourth full season of improvised theatre.
This year Paper Street continues to create improvised shows in classic genres: from horror to heart-warming to high noon. The company is once again raising the bar for what improv can be.
“Over the last three years Paper Street has focused on playwrights, authors and film directors,” explains artistic director Dave Morris. “This year we wanted to broaden our scope – these shows really transcend mediums. They’re more about mood and style.”
This season, the company is also adding public workshops and Saturday family matinees. And for the first time Paper Street Theatre will be offering seasons tickets. For only $40 seasons ticket holders can be guaranteed not to miss a moment.
