New place to play in Wellington!

Did you know Wellington now has it’s own actual Improv Theatre?!   Of course we still love BATS and The Fringe Bar and all the other great spaces about Welly where improv happens, but an actual improv theatre!!   WIT wishes Richard all the best as he gets The Scruffy Bunny Improv Theatre up and running (in the ground floor of the Reading Centre, 100 Courtney Place), and we look forward to WIT’s being among the brilliant and daring  bunch of shows that’ll be happening there.

nzif 2015 WIT Cruise

2015 NZIF Royal Equinox Adventure Cruise!

A show born from a love of Wes Anderson films, set on a cruise like no other. Taking inspiration from familiar Anderson themes like difficult families, the loss of innocence, and unlikely friendships.  Symmetry, simplicity, and strangely sympathetic weirdos in WIT’s latest reimagining – the Royal Equinox Adventure Cruise.

A premiere to open the New Zealand Improv Festival from its founding company, The Royal Equinox Adventure was Annika Naschitzki’s directorial debut and stared Kate Wilson, Guanny Liu-Prosee, Mary Little,  Matt Powell, Lyndon Hood and Matt Hutton (aka the music man).

The Wellington Improvisation Troupe (WIT) is Wellington’s not-for-profit, community-based improvisational theatre group. WIT players share a love of storytelling and work together as a team to inspire the audience. WIT theatre is sometimes serious, often hilarious and always totally unpredictable.

 

This show happened already!
