Every Wednesday night in August and September at the Fringe Bar see crash and burn improv as Wellington’s most desperate and talented WITs duke it out on stage before your very eyes for the crown of “Micetro”.
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.
