Attack of the Killer Puppets!

[This show happened already, on October 31st 2018]

Halllooooweeeeen! Puppets. B-Movie inspired storylines. Improvisation! What could possibly go wrong?

The Wellington Improv Troupe (WIT) is delighted to bring you a ridiculous Halloween monster mashup of our regular homage to the 1950s B-Movie genre Attack of the Killer-B Movie and 2018 Fringe Fest felt-fest, The Late Night Puppets.

Entirely suitable for adults and robust older children who like hokey-spooky stuff. Our puppets may misbehave and get a bit rude or accidentally sweary (but not in a mean way) and there’ll also likely be dramatic stage lighting and depths-of-the-crypt style music. Tinfoil hat making material will be provided for added audience safety.

Tickets will be available from Eventfinda or as door sales, but by golly heck darn, we love it when people book tickets in advance. And then you know you won’t miss out if sales go crazy.

Finally, yes, you may bring your puppet, and puppets do not need to purchase a separate ticket to that held by their accompanying human, unless they are particularly large.

Where: The Scruffy Bunny Improv Theatre,  100 Courtenay Pl, Te Aro, Wellington
When: 7pm, Wednesday 31st October
Tickets: $10

 

Isn’t it time you learnt to improvise?!

WIT’s next The Joy of Improvisation course starts at the Community Education Centre at Wellington High School, for eight weeks on Thursday nights at 7.30pm, from October 17th – complete improv beginners very welcome.  No need for any drama or comedy experience either, although if you have had some you’re welcome too.

Discover your creative potential and learn how to work in a team using the skills of improvisation to spontaneously create short scenes and stories in a safe and positive group environment.

All-Star Micetro, 2013

Micetro improvised comedy

Fringe Festival fixture (and former Fringe best comedy winner) 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. The audience will decide who gets eliminated and who will survive to be crowned ‘Micetro’.  Continue reading
