Have a laugh — and bring your grandma
Gallery 7 Theatre, Abbotsford’s only full-time theatre company, will host Panic Squad & Friends for a one-of-a-kind, not-to-be seen-anywhere-else-in-Canada, performance that will have audiences laughing all evening long.
Panic Squad, an internationally touring comedy improv team based out of the Pacific Northwest — featuring (among others) Langley’s Dave Swan — is helping Gallery 7 Theatre kick off their brand-new, 21st theatre season on Friday, Sept. 30 with an evening of zany fun that friends, family and even your grandma, can enjoy.
“Audiences are in for a great evening of side-splitting comedy,” said Ken Hildebrandt, Gallery 7 Theatre’s Artistic Director.
“The Panic Squad delivers an evening of super-clean, super-funny comedy the entire family can enjoy — comedy even your grandmother won’t blush at.”
With wit faster than a speeding bullet and able to dodge dirty humour in a single bound, the Panic Squad specializes in clean comedy without sacrificing the funny.
The Panic Squad performs improvised comedy — spontaneous humour that is crafted around audience participation. It’s just like television’s “Whose Line Is It Anyway,” but totally clean.
At the helm of the team is Andrew Bright, a resident of Lynden, Wash. For the Gallery 7 performance, he will be joined by Dann Warick, also of Lynden, Dave Swan of Langley, Mike Deboer of Vancouver, Frank Nickel of Richmond, and John Voth.
The 90-minute show runs one night only on Friday, Sept. 30 at 7:30 p.m. at the MEI Theatre, 4081 Clearbrook Rd., Abbotsford. Tickets are $18 adults, $16 seniors and students, $15 for groups of 10 or more and $10 for children (12 and under) and can be purchased through the House of James at 2743 Emerson St., Abbotsford or call 604-852-3701.
