Winter Micetro

Beloved improv elimination competition Micetro is back for another bite of the cheese.

Watch as a crew of eager improvisers go head to head in a battle of wit, spur-of-the-moment storytelling and glorious failure.  Players are a mix of seasoned improvisers and adorable newcomers, and everything in between.   You the audience will decide who gets eliminated and who will survive to be crowned ‘Micetro’.

Price:
Koha, with a hat passed around at the end, but if you have nothing spare to put in it that’s okay, we’d still like you to come enjoy our show.

When:
Thursday June 1st, 7pm–8pm
Thursday June 8th, 7pm–8pm
Thursday June 15th, 7pm–8pm

Where:
The Fringe Bar, 26-32 Allen St, Te Aro, Wellington

Websites:
WIT Event Facebook Page

So, get out and enjoy Wellington’s lively live theatre and comedy scene.  In comparison that flickering screen in the corner of your lounge is, well, quite flat.

2013 – A Christmas Cracker, 10 Year Reunion

Yuletide laughs December 10th to 13th 2013!

Wellington Improv Troupe (WIT) was proud to present another season of its successful ‘Christmas Cracker’ mix of improvised comedy shows. This year saw seven shows selected from WITs ten years of performing improvised comedy in Wellington.

“They are a lively group . . . see for yourself ” Theatreview

battle of witsBattle of WITS – Tuesday 10th December 7pm
Hot team on team all-in all-out over the top improv action! Teams of intrepid improvisors will battle it out to be crowned the champions. Choose your favourites and help them vanquish all rivals. The show that started it all!

thrills and swoon iconThrills & Swoon – Tuesday 10th December 8:30pm
Quivering bodices. Dark brooding eyes. Unbridled passion. Inspired by the romance novels you pretend not to read, stories and scenes will be created on the spot, as fresh as an innocent flower waiting to be plucked. First seen at NZ International Comedy Festival 2013.

iconsgorillaminiGorilla Theatre – Wednesday 11th December 7pm
It’s the law of the jungle as a crew of seasoned improvisers take turns directing their opponents – creating scenes, stories, sagas or songs before your eyes in a bid to win your approval. And bananas. And one unusually personable Gorilla. A licensed format from the International Theatresports Institute and one of WIT’s mainstays.

iconsduetsminiDuets – Wednesday 11th December 8:30pm
Two improvisors. One stage. No limits. Three pairs will take to the stage with only each other to rely on, and no limits to where the improv takes them. First seen Christmas Cracker 2012.

 

iconsdivasminiDivas ReUnited – Thursday 12th December 7pm
The Improv Divas performed their first WIT show back in 2004, and since then some amazing performers have been part of the group. Enjoy some of the best of the best on stage in a special reunion show!

iconsloveminiLove Possibly – Thursday 12th 8.30pm
Will there be love? Well, uh, possibly. There’ll likely be love, laughter, betrayal, awkwardness and any number of other human conditions, pinned to the stage like sparkly butterflies for dissection with a sharp improv knife. An original Improv Divas format.

iconsmicetominiMicetro – Friday 12th Dec 7pm
A raucous evening of spontaneity mixing beloved improv games, charismatic humility, and audience suggestions to create an utterly unique night of entertainment that will never be seen again!

Apocalimpro – WIT’s Christmas Cracker, 2012

2012apocolimpro11 – 14 December 2012, Gryphon Theatre

It’s 2012. You know what that means: The End. Who would have guessed it would begin right here in small town New Zealand?

The End of the World… a different way every night!

From an improvised pantomime to misbehaving puppets; from heartwarming fundraising to the end of civilisation itself! This December, WIT presents ‘A Christmas Cracker’ – two weeks of improvised theatre that promises comedy, charitable Christmas cheer, pantomime horses and more surprises than a leaked Ministry document.

From the people that brought you The Last Saloon, The Wishing Tree and The Young and the WITless VI, and featuring performances from both new members and old hats, this is a season not to be missed.
