Sin Peaks: the improvised soap opera
Causing serious laughs since 2011, Sin peaks combines a continous story line with recurring characters, live music, and a director on the microphone, setting up scenes on the fly!
The result is a hilarious unscripted romp through the lives of colourful characters, who may even break into an improvised song or two!
After being guest cast playing the Queen of Sins in their recent season Game of Sins: The End, Amanda is thrilled she has been made full cast!
Final episode of the current season is next Tuesday May 8 at the Red Gate Revue Stage on Granville Island - head down for cheap drinks and an epic finale filled with drama, intrigue and lots of sexual exploits!
Amanda made her debut at the 19th Vancouver International Improv Festival on Granville Island!
It ran from October 11-14, and featured a talented mix of local, national and international improvisers.
Amanda was part of the Vancouver Ensemble under the direction of Atlanta improvising legend, Rene Dellefont. She also performed with Talk Felty To Me, an improvised dirty puppet show.
2017 starts off with a bang!
