CAMPBELL’S BLIND AMIBITION TO ATTEND CIG
Campbell Collegiate’s senior improv team, Blind Ambition, won the right to compete at the Canadian Improv Games (CIG) in Ottawa after beating out other Regina-area public, Catholic and private high schools.
The team will be travelling to Ottawa for the CIG national tournament and festival from April 3rd to 7th at the National Arts Centre. The team is led by Michel Chammartin, Campbell drama teacher.
Blind Ambition will be competing with teams from every province and will also have the opportunity to participate in a variety of workshops.
Campbell improv has been a key element of the drama department since the CIG was held in Regina in 1989. Mr. Ted Stewart, a former Campbell teacher,
introduced improv to Saskatchewan, and the regional tournament trophy that Blind Ambition won last month is named the Ted Stewart Cup.
The CIG has been bringing high school students from across the country together to explore improvisation in a supportive and fun environment since
1977. Since 1989, Campbell has competed in the national tournament eight times with the best finish in 2007 when Campbell placed second overall. Good luck to the team.
