Tomorrow night is Show Us Your Wits: A Game for Two at Cafe Deux Soleils! This month we have a number of amazing talents joining the Fictionals for our improv and burlesque extravaganza. To get to know them a little better, we asked each of our guests for an interesting fact that our audience would not know about; here is what they had to say:
Ava Lure (burlesque guest): is a graduate of the Acting program at Douglas College, and is currently working towards a BFA in Theatre Performance at SFU.
Goldie Monroe (comedy guest): As well as a burlesque dancer, Goldie is part of The Vancouver Soap Company’s SIN PEAKS – a weekly improvised soap-opera that runs every Monday at the Waldor.
Sweetpea Magee (burlesque guest): A dancing Cocoa Cup during her last visit to Show Us Your Wits (December 2011), Sweetpea is happy to be bringing her own form of improv, “Choose your own Adventure” burlesque to this month’s show.
