St. John’s Regional Program

Welcome to the St. John’s Regional Canadian Improv Games Program! 

Established in 1992, the St. John’s program (serving all of Newfoundland and Labrador) is part of a national network of regional teams that join the Canadian Improv Games through their local high school.  During the school year, students gain access to a number of exciting and unique programs that encourage exploring the art of improv, learning life skills like Positivity, Communication, Leadership, Commitment and Teamwork, making new friends and having fun.

For more information, to register your high school in our program or to get involved as a volunteer, player or coach, please contact Regional Directors Elizabeth Glenn and Emily O’Keefe at
