Sweet Action Theatre Company

miss u

Tuesday July 23, 8:30pm - 9:30pm // FREE

Come on out to "miss u", a limited-edition variety show for improvisers to reunite and perform with old friends, formats or material they've been missin' at Sweet Action Theatre Company.

Is there someone you used to perform with but haven't in a while? Nothing says "MISS U" like inviting them to play a set with you in this show!

Is there an old improv format, song, monologue, sketch, or stand-up routine that you've been missin'? Dust it off and try it on for size as you walk down memory lane. Maybe it'll fit just right, or maybe it'll feel cute to remember a time when it did.

Is a sentimental longing for the past not cost enough? This event is FREE, dreamers.

miss u,
Nora & Gordon

Chad Live Directs a Workshop

Sunday June 16, 7:30pm - 9:30pm // $7.50 ($10 at the door)

Chad Live Directs a Workshop is part show and part workshop - with an ensemble being live directed in front of an audience. Chad explores the principles of clowning by pushing these brave souls into taking huge risks and embracing their epic failures, all for the pleasure of the crowd. Through it all, Chad points out teachable moments for students or just audience members who are curious about how clown work differs from other performance styles. If you like big risks and dumb fun, this is the show for you.

If you want to be in the show/workshop, sign up details are here:

$7.50 online or $10 at the door

All proceeds will go to the performers.

Martha St
Gordon Neill
Linda Julia Paolucci
Kabir Khanna
Alex Ateah
Cecilia Serafina
Desmond Ngai
Carol Wilson
And more TBA!

The Eulogy

Saturday March 23, 8:00pm - 9pm // $17.50


The Eulogy is an absurd, theatrical parody of a funeral speech, featuring a menagerie of characters whose inept and inapt speeches give anything but a proper homage.

An 11-time internationally award-winning dark comedy, The Eulogy has been performed 170+ times worldwide.

This will be the first full theatre experience inside the new Sweet Action Theatre at 180 Shaw St Unit 106.

Sweet Action Home Opener

Tuesday February 26, 8:00pm - 9:00pm // FREE

Sweet Action Theatre isn't ready yet. So in true clown-like fashion, let's open it up for the first show in many, many to come. 2-MAN NO-SHOW is in town, and there's nobody else we would want headlining!

The Assembly's own Orson Whales is also going to perform. Martha St and Spencer Thompson and Geoffrey Cork and everyone at The Assembly blazed the trail for Sweet Action to get off the ground, so Orson Whales needs to be there.

There are going to be more artists performing. More details to come.

Location is Sweet Action Theatre (180 Shaw St, Unit 106)
