Chatter: A look at Lynn Chwyl and Capitol Players Improv Comedy Troupe


Improvised Klondike melodrama

Thoroughly Modern Mountie sees Capitol Theatre Players Improv Comedy Troupe slap on their wide-brimmed hats.

Once again the North West Mounted Police fumble through more mysteries. This time bungling brothers, Constable Robert McKenzie and Constable Douglas McKenzie, encounter curious emojis.

Things go wrong after the duo discovers a sequence of emojis in the Edmonton Mountains. Has a curse been placed on the folks at Fort Edmonton? Or is there greater evil afoot?

Directed by Dana Andersen, the improv show stars Tom Edwards, Matt Busby, Davina Stewart, Jeff Halaby, Peter Brown and Aimee Beaudoin.

Rated 18A, showtime is May 25 and 26 at Capitol Theatre from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tickets are $22 to $24. Visit
