Is it time to play? Darn heck it is

News just in?

Our last training Tuesday for 2022 is December 6th, with a show night is planned for December 13th at the PowWow Room.  

Oh I’ve never done much improv – where do I start? 

If you’re looking for a grounding in the essentials of improv (or a delightful refresher) eight weeks of The Joy of Improvisation on Thursday nights is perfect.  Term 4 is already under way, and our ‘Level 2’ course  Improv for the Stage isn’t running again until next year,  signup for 2023 classes will be available from early December through the WCEC website.  WIT has run these classes on Thursdays in cheerful association with the Wellington Community Education Centre at Wellington High School since forever (or at least 2003).   If you’d like more information, contact us.

But if you’ve done The Joy or an intro class somewhere else, please, come along and play on Tuesday nights instead.

WIT’s Tuesday training
WIT has regular Tuesday night improv sessions in the Wellington CBD for people who’ve completed basic training, either with WIT or the equivalent somewhere else.   Sometimes we have special guest tutors, but most sessions are led by experienced volunteer WIT trainers.  There’s a break over the Xmas holidays, and there are also occasional nights off when a WIT show is opening or for other special reasons (eg the NZ Improv Festival, or if the Covid levels change), signup to the newsletter or follow WIT’s Facebook page for the most up-to-date info.

Our current venue is Te Auaha, 65 Dixon St,  in the ‘Garage’ Studio on the ground floor (turn right just before the lifts).  Sometimes though the room changes so just check at the front desk if we’re not where you expect.

Under Covid setting green, masks are no longer required.  But if you want to wear a mask during class, of course you can.   Also, everyone,  stay well wrapped up safely at home if you’ve symptoms of contagious things.
