Performers in WIT improv show Micetro as the winner is crowned

Is it time to play?

Shows:  Our first ever grand-jam Improv Goulash happened on Sunday November 24th in the Powwow Room and it was a bunch of fun.  There were improv groups from all over town and we’ll definitely do some more nights like it next year.   Now, we’re getting ready for Fringe 2020 with TWO shows, Poe’d and Battle of Wits.

If you’d like to learn improv from the beginning for yourself (or rediscover it after a break), WIT’s evening class The Joy of Improv has run in cheerful co-operation with the Wellington Community Education Centre for more than ten years.  Our next course starts Thursday February 13th 2020.

Have you already completed WIT’s Joy of Improv course, or have similar experience with another troupe?  Our intermediate Next Step – Improv for the Stage  course runs twice a year, usually timed for after every-other Joy of Improv.  Our next course starts in Thursday May 7th. 

WIT also has regular improv sessions for people who’ve completed basic training, either with WIT or the equivalent somewhere else.  WIT’s member Tuesdays are held at Te Auaha in Dixon St.  Note that we’ll be taking an improv-holiday from mid December to mid January.
