Start off spooky season with dose of murder with a side of laughter as The Improv Centre on Granville Island presents Stage Fright 2: Murder at the Disco!
From September 29th to October 28th, Fridays and Saturdays will be murder! The Improv Centre’s wildly successful murder mystery is back with a groovy new twist.
Picture it! It’s 1977 at the ‘Diamond Disco’, the audience is a buzz for their annual disco-til-you-drop-a-thon. Everyone is ready to boogie to the max to win a major cash prize…but for one of these disco dancers, it’ll be their last. In true, Improv Centre form, this interactive whodunnit is full of hilarious hijinks inspired by audience suggestions. And in true Stage Fright form, it’ll be up to one lucky audience member to solve the Murder at the Disco!
“The Improv Centre audiences loved the ‘whodunnit’ nature of Stage Fright,” says Artistic Director Jalen Saip. “Last fall’s show was set in the early 1950’s with an emphasis on the glitz and glamour of show biz as a familiar murder mystery trope. This time, we’re going with the 1970’s because it’s such a dynamic time period with a lot of groovy characters and old-timey detective dramas and themes we can explore. Our ensemble is very excited to delve into some whacky and mischievous characters in this production – inspired by our audience’s suggestions – and to include one lucky audience member as our lead detective throughout the second half of the performance!”
Stage Fright 2: Murder at the Disco! is on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm from September 29 to October 28, with a special opening night performance on Thursday, September 28 at 7:30pm at The Improv Centre, 1502 Duranleau Street, Granville Island.
