Vanier improv team needs your help to compete in Ottawa

The Vancouver Island improv champions from G.P. Vanier need some help to get to Ottawa for the Canadian Improv Games national tournament April 15 to 19.

There they will compete with other high school Improv teams from across Canada for the National Cup at Canada’s National Art Centre.

The Canadian Improv Games is an education-based format of improvisational theatre for Canadian high schools. To get to this point the team competed at the North Island Tournament in Courtenay, where they won first place. The top four teams then moved onto regionals in Victoria.

On March 28, you are invited to GP Vanier improv team’s Italian  Improviganza, an Italian spaghetti dinner, silent auction and improv variety show fundraiser.

The event will be held at 6:30 at 1640 Burgess Rd. in Courtenay at the Northgate Foursquare Church.

Contact www.facebook.com/events/1403070329955438 or e-mail

improvfundraising@gmail.com to reserve seats or purchase tickets directly from improv team members. Cash or cheques payable to G.P Vanier are accepted.

If you can’t make the dinner, you can also help by making a donation at Fundrazr. The address is https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/8hfsd/ab/d2sVJ0. No amount is too small.

The team of eight is coached at Vanier by Lori Mazey.
