Mission

Sour Dog Theatre is a group of young artists with a fresh perspective and an approach to theatre that bucks trends.

We make a point to create scripted work that is poignant and rooted in comedy. We know that if we can laugh together, we can also empathize together, cry together, and reflect together. Comedy is our favourite tool to get people thinking, talking, and taking action on social and global issues.

Our live improvised comedy is down to earth. We pride ourselves on telling good stories, not just an hour of cheap jokes. Our shows are always good for a laugh whether you're an improv junkie or want to break the ice on a first date. Did we mention our shows are PERFECT for first dates?

We are all about the community.

The Company

Ali Froggatt

Ali is the artistic director and founder of Sour Dog Theatre. She is extremely passionate about creating a company that can be used as a vehicle for herself and her comrades to explore their artistic voices, visions, and potentials. With a background in improvisation, training and performing with the Loose Moose Theatre company, Ali puts an emphasis on failing forward in the Sour Dogs' work. Take risks, have fun, break rules. Learn something new, wash, rinse, repeat.

Ali Froggatt has created or co-created several shows including Holiday Hangover, Unlucky In Love, Dog Sees God, Missed Connections, 7 Stories, Millenials and various corporate bookings.
