Popalopalots Night Before Night Before Night Before Night Before Christmas Spectacular
December 21, 2018 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm at The Guild
The Popalopalots (PEI’s favorite improv group) will be taking the stage the Night Before Night Before Night Before Night Before Christmas (December 21), bringing laughs and an all-around good time with them…All while making everything up on the spot!
Just like a classic episode of ‘Whose Line is it Anyway?’ the audience members play a pivotal role at a Popalopots show, where they bring suggestions to life with stories, characters, and jokes that either knock it out of the park or, at times, fall flat on their face. Either way, you’ll be in for a night of unforgettable laughs.
December 7, 2018 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm at The Guild
Showing through December 16th.

An Improvised Christmas Carol
December 6, 2018 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm at The Guild
ACT’s latest production sees The Island Improv Company present Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol, with a comedic twist: the audience is Dickens’ co-writer.
Ebeneezer Scrooge (Noah Nazim) is still a miser who becomes a better person after meeting three ghosts, but key details are changed based on audience suggestions.
It’s a fun, hilarious, and sincere blast of Christmas cheer that is different every night.
Starring Noah Nazim, Johnny Novak, Nadine Salami, Nason Scribner, Darlene Lund, Stacy Dunn, Sophie MacInnis, Sophia Ball and John Mazerolle.
Atlantic Canada is very familiar with issues around labour. Conditions of seasonal work, underemployment and redundancy are a part of the reality of this region, but so are qualities of self reliance and communal activity. In this show, photography, sculpture, poetry, drawing and video all contribute to a portrait of our evolving work environment.
Featuring work from artists working in or concerned with this region, this exhibit provides an opportunity to reflect on ideas such as value, obsolescence, and local sustainability.
At the Guild Gallery.
On display until January 19, 2019.
November 3, 2018 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm at The Guild
