About WIT

To contact us, either use this handy form, or if you are a traditionalist, write to Wellington Improvisation Troupe, PO Box 5483, Wellington – we love to hear from you.

The Wellington Improvisation Troupe (WIT) is Wellington’s not-for-profit, community-based improvisational theatre group. WIT teaches performs and teaches the skills of improvisational theatre at venues around the Wellington region, with occasional forays further afield.

Our theatre is made up on the spot, usually based on suggestions from the audience.  WIT players share a love of storytelling and work together as a team to inspire the audience, we’re sometimes serious, often hilarious and always totally unpredictable.

Way back in 2003 performers from the Micetro show that won the New Zealand International Fringe Festival Best Comedy Award decided it was about time they formed a group that had a name.  WIT brought together many of Wellington’s improvoholics, out of work actors and bored public servants, and a decade and then some years later is going strong.
