Fabulous Family Fun
The preschool set will be singing and dancing alongside their parents when Disney Jr. presents the Imagination Movers Live In Concert, September 13 at the Royal Theatre.

Collaboratively written, the music covers a variety of genres, including old funk, new wave, punk, country, ballads, hip hop, American rock and more.

The perfect blend of optimism, imagination and spontaneity, join the friends in their quest to find the best game ever.
Improving improv: The Comic Strippers
The University of Victoria’s Farquhar Auditorium may never be the same after the October 29 visit of the Comic Strippers. Think it aounds ridiculous? You’re not alone. “Semi-undressed and completely unscripted,” these six shirtless dudes named Chip – actually six of Canada’s best improv comedians – aim to breathe new life into standard improv games. “This is not a show with comedians stripping; it’s improvisers playing fake male strippers putting on a comedy show.”
