Learn how to make up comedic theatre on the spot.

This one day workshop is ideal for anyone looking to dip their toe into the world of spontaneous discovery and creation. During the day you will learn the basics of improvised theatre and comedy; from creating characters to working as a team to create scenes and sketches.

You will learn all this in a supportive environment where collaboration is key and where the ‘mistakes’ are all part of the fun. There’ll be warm-ups, games, exercises and scenes that everyone will get to participate in (either as a group or in pairs in front of the group).

This workshop is ideal if you have little or no experience of improv or if you wish to reacquaint yourself with the basics of comedic and theatrical improv. You don’t need to bring anything with you, other than yourself, and we recommend you wear clothes that allow you to move about easily.

Designed for any big kids aged 18 plus, join us for a whole day of play and reconnect with your funny bone!

We believe that theatre should be for everyone and always ensure our building and sessions are accessible to all participants, removing any barriers to participation.
