record breaking improv and #artsdayTO

Saw this courtesy Naomi Snieckus and NTOW is a favourite of mine so here’s a PSA for them.
Attention Toronto Improvisers! NTOW is putting together a core cast of improv stars for a record breaking attempt at a 54-hour non-stop improvised comedy soap opera.
It’s part of IMPULSE, a new international improv festival we are running in association with Soulpepper Theatre. The Soap-a-thon will start at 3pm on Friday December 13th and finish at 9pm on Sunday December 15th at The Young Centre For The Performing Arts in the Distillery. Half of the proceeds will go to charity.
We’re going to need a core cast of lunatics to do the ENTIRE run. We’ll also need people to do big chunks of time and of course we’ll need volunteers to help run this sucker! Who’s in?  Email  info@thenationaltheatreoftheworld.com with the subject: “Impulse Soap Cast” or “Impulse Soap Volunteer”.

Earlier this year, City Hall committed to reach a $25 per capita funding level for Toronto artists by 2017. IT’S UP TO US – artists, arts workers, students, and patrons – to make sure they follow through on that promise!

On Friday, November 8, TAPA and the Friends of the Arts Network will converge on City Hall for the 4th Annual Arts Day at the City. Show Toronto Councillors just how important their support is to our community by getting involved today: here’s what you can do
