Improvisational troupe winding up eighth season with two shows at the Belfry’s Studio Theatre

Victoria’s top improvisers, directed by master manipulator Ian Ferguson, wrap up the eighth season of Sin City Improv with two more shows of Castaways, May 5 and 12 at The Belfry’s Studio Theatre.

Described as Lost meets Survivor with a hint of Gilligan’s Island, Castaways tells the story of tourists from a sunken cruise ship excursion trip, who wash up on a desert island in the South Pacific.

The quirky bunch have no choice but try to survive – with often hilarious results. Will they be rescued? Or will they succumb to threats on the mysterious island? Find out when Castaways wraps 8 p.m. on consecutive Sundays. Newcomers are welcome and every episode stands alone as a great night out. You can find a plot summary on “The Story so Far” blog at sincityimprovserial.com.

Having spent seven seasons performing 145 episodes Tuesday nights at the Victoria Event Centre, the troupe returned from a two-year hiatus to triumphantly debut Castaways at their new home at the Belfry Theatre.

Cast members include Kirsten Van Ritzen, Morgan Cranny, Robert Conway, Christine Upright, Alan Penty, Charlie de Pape, Bill Nance, Colleen Blunt, Gene Sargent and Jim Leard. The live musical score was composed by Patrick Boyle.

Tickets are $16 in advance at the Belfry box office, online or by phone at 250-385-6815. They will also be sold night of show at the door (7 p.m. opening), if available. To find out more about Sin City, visit sincityimprovserial.com or find them on Facebook.
