The second night is Megan Furniss’s favourite format, Tribute!

Thirdly, they perform Leon Clingman’s favourite, SuperScene. 

You will most definitely want to come to more than one of these unmissable, totally made up, hilarious and unexpected hour long performances.

The Shows:

Thursday 29 June - Anne Hirsch’s favourite format, TheatreSports, a night of Annebelievable fun. This is highly competitive, short- form improv, where teams of actors compete against each other in a series of short games based on suggestions from the audience.

“Watching Theatresports is the most fun you can have with your clothes on. But we highly encourage you to take them off as well.” Anne Hirsch

Cast: Anne Hirsch, Leon Clingman, Megan Furniss, Tandi Buchan, Ardine Fick and Brett Fish Anderson. Music by Jaco Griessel.

 Friday 30 June – Megan Furniss’ favourite and Improguise’s original format, Tribute. An improvised tribute show about a made up band, with real, made up songs based on titles from the audience. Raucous, rambunctious fun!

“I love Tribute because I get to pretend to be connected, in some way, to a band (my secret fantasy) and I get to sing their songs (regardless of the fact that I’m no great shakes as a singer). I also adore playing with everyone in this format and feeling the love from the audience. It’s a serious winner!” 
-Megan Furniss

Saturday 1 July - Leon Clingman’s favourite, SuperScene.  5 actors take to the stage and each one gets a chance to direct.  One by one the scenes are voted off by the audience, who use a clapometer. Finally there is 1 winner of the ultimate prize of “SuperScene!”

“I love SuperScene because it offers a full package of entertainment. I get to act and direct and there is so much variety in styles, genres, stories and characters, and to top it all off the audience get to decide what they see. This is a very exciting, highly entertaining and competitive format.” 
-Leon Clingman

Cast: Anne Hirsch, Leon Clingman, Megan Furniss, Tandi Buchan and Ardine Fick. Music by Jaco Griessel
