Off Key Improv performs one-act musicals and musical-themed shows that are completely made up on the spot. Risky, fun, and parodic of the musical genre, Off Key Improv shows are entirely inspired from audience-provided titles and suggestions. The audience joins along for the ride while the cast and band improvise everything including the story, characters, songs, music and choreography. Each night is the opening and closing night to a musical show that will never be seen again!
Formed in Vancouver, Canada, in 2012, Off Key Improv is made up of an eclectic cast of local performers and musicians. The group was co-founded by Jennifer Pielak (Director) and Peter Abando (Musical Director) who together recently co-wrote the Ovation Award-nominated Connected: The Musical with fellow Off Key Improviser Alison Chisholm. Off Key Improv has performed regularly at Port Coquitlam’s Second Storey Theatre, as part of the rEvolver Theatre Festival and are champions of Vancouver’s Improv Fight Club. They are excited to be a new addition to Pacific Theatre’s 2014-2015 season, to perform at the New York Musical Improv Festival this October and can’t wait to perform on the VIIF stage with amazing improv talent from all over the world!
