Scripting Aloud: Improv Edition! Saturday, May 25

script reading, table read, vancouver, bc

Go way off-book! There are things scripted, and things improvised, and in-between are the doors…of scripted improv. Scripting Aloud’s next event Saturday, May 25 explores the space between tightly scripted material, and unstructured improv – with outlined scenarios from THE PRODIGAL FATHER (feature, dramedy) by Ronin Wong. Plenty of room to play? You’re right!

Local creator in attendance. Performer casting (all OE) from 2:30 pm on the day (arrive early/on time!). Scripted improv session from 3:00 pm.  $2 Membership* at the door, cash only.

Cross-cultural scripts and writers — for our cross-cultural community, and a borderless audience. If this is your reality (or you want it to be), this event is for you!

*Scripting Aloud is a registered BC non-profit, producing script development and live staged reading events for 19+ attendees (same idea as film festival society membership fees)
