Vancouver TheatreSports League presents Ultimate Improv Championship
Venue: The Improv Centre
Half-price tickets: $7.75
UIC is Vancouver's most dangerous improv and pits two blood-thirsty teams of improvisers against each other in a non-stop timed challenge. At the end of each performance the audience votes who will be the Ultimate Improv Champion, with the winning team returning the following week to defend their title. "Ultimate Improvisers" are among the best-trained and well-conditioned athletes in the world. While this is a highly intense sport, improviser safety is of paramount concern to UIC ownership and management. Please note - no improviser has ever been seriously injured in a UIC event.
Forbidden Vancouver presents Prohibition City Walking Tour
Venue: Cathedral Square
Half-price tickets: $14.30
In 1917, Prohibition hit Vancouver harder than a slug of bathtub gin, knocking the city to its knees. Saloon doors swung closed for good, forcing law-abiding citizens into an underground world of bootlegged spirits and illicit activity. These ain't the kinda stories you'll hear on tour buses, nor the kind you'll read in guide books. Throw yourself at the mercy of Vancouver's oldest and meanest streets. But be warned, you'll need sharp wits - and an even sharper pencil - to survive in Prohibition City. Suited for ages 16+
