SONGBUSTER: An Improvised Musical

Every night is opening night! Marvel as an incredible, award-winning cast of improvisers creates a brand new musical on the spot. Audience suggestions are transformed into a fast-paced, ridiculous and always entertaining new musical complete with brand new songs, stories and characters. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry… and you’ll never see it again!

Created in the summer of 2015 by Stephanie Malek (Bad Dog’s Final Frontier) and Josh Murray (Second City Touring Company), this improvised musical is directed by Tom King and Carly Heffernan. Joining Malek and Murray in the cast are Ashley Comeau (Second City Mainstage), Tricia Black (Sketchersons), Alexandra Hurley (Edinburgh Fringe), Nug Nahrgang (Evil Dead! The Musical), Nicky Nasrallah (PANACEA!), and Connor Thompson (Second City Mainstage).


“I’d watch them perform anywhere, any time. NNNN”– Now Magazine, January 2017

“The genius in the front row for the opening of Next Stage Theatre Festival offered: “ComicCon,” and we were off to the races. The absolutely hilarious and completely improvised races, through which we galloped for a very funny hour.” – Mooney on Theatre, January 2017

“The collaboration between the cast members in Songbuster was uncannily great. Over the course of the hour, they worked together seamlessly to weave rich characters into a complex plot while still leaving room for plenty of jokes.” – My Comedy Report, January 2017


The County's Artisanal Comedy Troupe: TASTE THAT!


Taste That is thrilled to be the host company for the Comedy Country Summer Comedy Series.

The County’s Artisanal Comedy Troupe: TASTE THAT! is a ragtag group of Prince Edward County residents including an author, a brewer, a beekeeper, a councillor, a painter, an innkeeper, and two comedy producers. The group is well-known in The County for their semi-monthly shows, and their annual Christmas comedy productions (The Nightmare After Christmas, No Room at the Inn) that take an irreverent look at life in Prince Edward County. Their shows feature a hilarious mix of improv and scripted comedy including their signature recurring segment, The County Roundup – a local newsdesk that earns bigtime laughs at small town news.
