Impro Unwrapped, WIT’s Christmas Cracker 2012

2012_improunwrappedIn association with the Australian Impro Collective, Wellington Improvisation Troupe presents Impro Unwrapped – an international goodwill project that invites audience members to bring along a gift to put under the on-stage Christmas Tree.

We will randomly select and unwrap gifts during the show. The unwrapped gifts will be the inspiration for our Christmas stories and songs all made up on the spot, without a script, without a rehearsal, live before your very eyes! At the end of the night, gifts will be re-wrapped and donated to the fine folk at Wellington City Mission to pass on to those less fortunate, in addition to all proceeds from this performance.
