Season Five of Sin City the live improvised serial

Sin City goes to space in fifth year of improvised theatre

 

Sin City Season Five debuts with the 100th episode in Victoria – and only runs for 12 episodes. You will not want to miss out one minute of the fun.

Broad Theatrics has announced the exciting new setting: SPACE. In the near future, a team of astronauts are on a mission to replace crew at an interstellar space station. They arrive to find the crew mysteriously missing …

Expect the unexpected as an original tale is improvised on the spot – along the lines of Gravity and Interstellar, with a hint of Guardians of the Galaxy. 

Every season is the equivalent of a new unscripted, serialized play. The cast debut their new characters in the Preview, then every week the story unfolds, unrehearsed and unplanned – in the ultimate long-form improv – with Ian Ferguson directing live in front of the audience. Each show promises laughter and stands alone as a great night out. The tale wraps in the Finale on March 31.

Season 4 KINGDOM OF THRONES was set during the Middle Ages, in a European castle – evoking the dramatic intrigue of Game of Thrones and Grimm’s Fairytales. By contrast, Season 3 BEDLAM-BY- SEA was delightfully silly farce, much like Fawlty Towers.

The concept is created by Ian Ferguson and Kirsten Van Ritzen, who produced SIN CITY in Toronto for 5 years, and founded Edmonton’s Canadian Comedy Award winning DIE-NASTY troupe, now in its 22nd season.

Sin City SPACE stars Wes Borg, Van Ritzen, Morgan Cranny, Robert Conway, Christine Upright, Amanda Lisman, Katt Campbell, Bill Nance, Amy Culliford, Alan Penty, Charlie de Pape, Justin Carter and Mike Delamont.
