Queen's Players

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki



The Queen's Players is a sketch comedy/improvisation/rock and roll troupe that performs at Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario. It produces three productions every year: one in the fall, one in the winter, and one show in the summer. The shows are cast by and with Queen's University students each term.

Seasonal shows[edit]

The shows produced in the winter and fall semesters consist of a cast of 10 or 12 students and has a continuous plot, usually concerning popular TV or movie characters. The summer show is a sketch comedy show, with a smaller cast ranging from seven to nine performers, written by the actors themselves. Both formats of the show alternate each scene with a rousing rock, rap, or pop song sung by one of the players and performed by the show's live band.

History[edit]

The Queen's Players was first called the Queen's Drama Guild, established in 1900. Prominent members of the Guild included Lorne Greene and Robertson Davies. In the 1980s the troupe adopted its current format. The shows draw characters from popular culture. Each show is given a witty, often bawdy title that reflects some of the key characters in the show, and often includes low-brow, ultra-sexual humour.

Other noteworthy alumni of the QP include Laura Bertram, Ashleigh Banfield, Elena Juatco and the Arrogant Worms.[citation needed]
