From the Canadian Improv Games Board of Directors:
It is with a heavy heart that the Board of the Canadian Improv Games (“CIG”) announces the cancellation of the CIG National Tournament as well as CIG’s summer programming Improv U, Next Act, Improvcamp. At this stage we believe the pace of infection and increasing impact of COVID-19 in our communities makes cancellation the safest and most responsible course of action.
These programs are the culmination of the hard work and commitment to improvised excellence by students, teachers, volunteers and theatre professionals from across the country, and the decision to cancel was not made lightly. However we are committed to being responsible members of our communities, and we believe this decision is a reflection of that.
The Staff and Board of the Canadian Improv Games wish our students and all of our communities – volunteers, teachers, families, audiences and alumni – the best of health.
