One Evil Wizard

One Audience-Member-turned-Hero

One epic journey to save the world!

The world of Jarö is plagued by the Evil Haldor. Magical creatures, known as Mumplings, are disappearing one by one. But there is hope: a legend tells of a Hero who will come from beyond the fourth wall to save the day…


Join us as a cast of world-class improvisers choose one member of the audience to become the Hero in this unforgettable Fantasy Adventure! Different each night, you’d be hard pressed to find theatre as daring as this!

“If a guy from the audience is going to write punch-lines like that, what do we need playwrights for anymore?”

—The Calgary Herald


“Top to bottom, Legend Has It is this season’s feel-good show!”

—Joyful Magpie eZine


“All the elements you love in these kinds of adventure stories are present. Your fabulous geek meters will blow off the scales.”

—Applause Meter
