Next Act Festival

Next Act Festival is heading to Halifax in 2018!

Halifax, Nova Scotia
Bus Stop Theatre
July 25-29, 2018

Next Act is an intensive 4-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.

Registration includes:

  • 3 days of intensive workshops with master instructors
  • 3 nights of performances opportunities at Bus Stop Theatre, alongside some of Halifax’s best improvisers
  • 4 days and nights of team-building, social activities and local sight-seeing adventures
  • 1 super amazing Next Act Festival T-shirt
  • Unlimited special memories and high fives

Full programming and our incredible list of instructors will be announced in March.  Stay tuned for all the fun details.  This year is not to be missed!
