Next Act is an intensive 5-day training program and festival for improvisers ages 19 to 24. Registered participants take part in a series of in depth improv training sessions with master instructors from across Canada while honing their skills at night - as members of a Next Act ensemble - through a series of performance opportunities at established local theatres and venues.
The festival, held in a new city each year, is also meant to expose young improvisers to the different improv communities (and rich Canadian theatre histories) of specific cities across Canada. Accordingly, programming will include a selection of meaningful local experiences.
