Since starting to take the Second City courses, I have been so inspired to work towards the creation of a new Improv troupe. Now, I've had obsessions before, but something about this particular concept just pulls at me on a daily basis. Tonight I began my own part of the process. I created a name and a business card.
I'm going to be a tease and not provide that name yet. I have sent the info to a select group and am waiting on some feedback/criticisms/blows to the head from them before I move any further.
I once blew my chance to be part of what is now a fairly successful Improv troupe in the GTA. The director of that group and myself were fellow actors in a show in Newmarket, and he asked me to co-start the group. I at that time was reluctant to think this woud be viable and blew him off. Regretful decision.
This is my time to redeem that mistake. A lot of work is ahead, and I look forward to it. Hopefully I'll have some exciting news to share soon.
