“Stephanie Herrera’s relentless energy is paralleled only by her depth of improvisation knowledge. She makes students keen to learn more, improve and perfect their art. What I like best is that they absolutely learn team-play with Stephanie rather than one-up-manship which tends to be their want. She can get them to do things that brings joy to my heart as their main drama educator. Stephanie Herrera is well worth your time and pennies…it’s merely pennies when you consider what she does with them in an hour!”

We are available for corporate parties, special events, family celebrations, private workshops, and school performances. Durham Improv has a variety of options including:

  • “Short-form” improv games (like ones seen on “Whose Line is it anyway?”) that involve audience participation.
  • “Long form” improv like our famous “improvised musical”, where the performers make up the plot, characters and songs on the spot.
  • “Character walk-abouts” where the performers interact with the crowd in character and costume.
  • Choose from one of our interactive dinner theatres…we come to you!
  • Workshops in business skills and creativity! Groups can be from 12-100!

The performers are made up of up-and-coming talent, seasoned improvisers, Second City and TheatreSports main stage players as well as faces you’ve seen in commercials and Canadian television.
