Nothing like live theatre to spark up a crowd, and when the crowd is part of the theatre, it’s an entirely different experience. The crowd at Local Loco’s was the cause and the butt of a variety of gags and jokes on Thursday, May 17th when the Defrosted Flakes Improv Troupe showed up to entertain.
Improvisational theatre games (popularized by the television show Whose Line Is It Anyway?) are a fun way to challenge your acting and comedic skills. The point is to create humorous situations and crises based on suggestions from a live audience. Defrosted Flakes, always on the lookout for new members to torment, practices weekly and performs monthly at Local Loco’s. The skills that some members have from years of musical and theatre performance mixed with the raw energy and fresh perspective of the newer people in the troupe concoct a hilarious result. The Flakes have performed as a group and as individuals at Art in the Park, Lund Days, the Evergreen Theatre, the Gazebo, Texada Community Hall and in the Comox Valley. No matter the venue, Defrosted Flakes is ready to laugh with you, not at you. Seriously.
If you are interested in live improvisational dinner theatre, you would be wise to call now for reservations. Tables are already booking up for this evening of great food, fun and laughter.
