THE DEATH OF CAPTAIN SPACESHIP

6 07 2013

Last week, after ten months and nine amazing “episodes” (including a motherflippin’ XMAS SPECIAL!) the crew of Captain Spaceship just had their final mission at Mainline Theatre (But for HOW LONG!?). The finale was bitter-sweet, funny, silly, spacey, timey-wimey and even a little sentimental; all the things I’ve come to love about this format!

This on-going sci-fi improv series has been one of the funniest and most rewarding shows I’ve ever had the pleasure of being involved with. The incredibly talented cast, that really was the best of the best, made my stupid idea come alive and took it too places I never thought imaginable. I was thrilled to see how quickly audiences embraced the show and gave us our own little cult following (cult followings are cool). I have had such a blast living out the adventure of these crazy characters, I do hope we get to do this again sometime. Plans are already underway for Captain Spaceship Down-under and a follow up series in Montreal next year, so stay tuned Spaceshippers, the Captain is just locked in stasis…for now.

I want to take this opportunity to thank my incredible cast Lea Rondot, Pat Dussault, Dan Jeannotte, Lise Vigneault, Matt Goldberg, Marc Rowland and Kirsten Rasmussen as well as all the incredible guest stars who appeared throughout the series: Dan Derkson, Jess Fildes, Anders Yates, Colin Munch, Brent Skagford, Vinny Francois and the mighty Vance Gillies!

Thanks also to the fine folks at Mainline Theatre, Especially Amy Blackmore, Al Lafrance and out awesome techie Emily Thorne. Big thanks also to Jeremy Hechtman who got the ball rolling on this project and without whom, it might never have happened.

They could end up anywhere and anyWHEN and will have only their sharp improv skills, some cheap costumes and maybe some lasers to defend themselves.So go where no man (or woman, or alien) has gone before as some of Montreal’s best improvisers (including members of The Big HOO-HAA, Uncalled For and Montreal Improv) plus an interstellar cast of talented guest stars brave the vacuum of space to protect mankind from the unknown…
