We’re turning 40!!

It’s a huge year for us as we celebrate our 40th anniversary and we have a lot of exciting events planned.  Our goal is to find ways for us all to reconnect, share and remember what makes the Canadian Improv Games so special.

On April 15 at The Great Hall in Toronto, the Canadian Improv Games will celebrate 40 years of advancing the practice of improvisational theatre with youth across Canada.

Join us for a unique evening of improv, music, food, awards and many special guests at our CIG40 Celebration, a fundraiser promoting the Next 40 years of thrill, excitement, life-long friendships, and the art of improv with the Canadian Improv Games.
