ilarious mayhem is coming to the Gallery 7 Theatre stage as Panic Squad & Friends Comedy Improv returns to regale Fraser Valley audiences with their unique brand of super-clean, super-funny comedy improv on March 2 at the Matsqui Centennial Auditorium.

Using only suggestions provided by the audience, Panic Squad leaps in to 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 and an annual favourite,” explains Gallery 7 Theatre’s Executive/Artistic Director, Ken Hildebrandt. “They never fail to bring on the funny. And because their brand of humour is clean humour, the whole family can enjoy the fun.”

For 20 years, The Panic Squad has performed across the United States and Canada for hundreds of churches, businesses, national conferences and top Fortune 500 corporations. They have appeared on CBC, CTV, 100 Huntley Street, JCTV, CBS and more.
In addition to their incredibly clean and funny improv shows, The Panic Squad uses improv to teach key elements of communication, teamwork and leadership through their improv leadership workshop series.
