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.

Micetro: Bringing Improv to the ‘Burbs

Good-natured failure, we’ve got it and we are bringing it to the burbs! Crash and burn elimination improve in the style of “whose line is it anyway” is heading your way.

The Wellington Improvisation Troupe, Wellington’s not-for-profit community improvisational theatre group, present an exciting new season of MICETRO improv for the 2009 NZ Fringe Festival.

This year’s Micetro season for the Fringe will see three nights of never-seen-before and never-to-be seen-again spontaneity in Newtown and Lower Hutt. An excited flock of Wellington’s best improvisers, eight to twelve improvisers vie for the title; only one can win.

“Micetro is a show like no other,” says the show’s producer, Lesley McRae “Each night, two directors will bring the performers on stage to sing, dance and over-act their way through strange and familiar improv games”.

Each scene is judged by the audience, until eventually all the players are eliminated except for one; that one will be crowned the Micetro King/Queen.

“Formidable and funny” .. Theatreview.co.nz.

Please note two separate venues:
19 & 20 February: 7pm – Newtown venue
27 February: 7pm – Lower Hutt venue
