Comedy troupe comes to Abbotsford’s Matsqui Auditorium on March 1

Gallery 7 Theatre presents the Panic Squad and Friends Comedy Improv for one show only on Friday, March 1.

The program takes place at 7:30 p.m. at Matsqui Centennial Auditorium, 32315 South Fraser Way.

Those who have watched the hit TV show Whose Line is it Anyway? will know exactly what’s in store for this evening of fun.

However, there will be one distinctive difference: the comedy will be totally clean.

Using only suggestions provided by the audience, Panic Squad leaps into action, creating scenes right out of thin air. The results are side-splitting hilarity.

“The Panic Squad show is always a highlight of our season,” said Ken Hildebrandt, Gallery 7 Theatre’s executive/artistic director.

“And since we’re doing a season of ‘classics,’ we had to have the team back with their one-of-a-kind, classic comedy improv.”

Panic Squad combines exceptional comedic talent, a love for entertaining and commitment to excellence to create a high-quality, professional show.
