Banner Spookytown Improv Jam

Spookytown – Halloween improv Jam 2023!

Halloween is when the restless spirits of the uneasy undead walk the streets of the Windy City, and therefore exactly the right time for a gently haunted improv jam.

Dress up as you like, or even disguise yourself as someone Perfectly Normal. There may well be prizes, and certainly there’ll be candy. The Jam will organinsed in a directed ‘games from the hat’ style, with suggestions used to inspire games and open scenes.

If you’d like to play you’re in! If you feel a bit shy, you’re the audience!! Doors open at 6.30pm for a group warm up, sitting down for the full jaminess from 7pm. It’s simple and fun, with plenty of friendly people to support you if you haven’t done improv in a while, or even much ever at all.

Of course, as this is a licensed venue if you’re under 18 bring a parent or guardian, and if you look under 25 (as so many of the undead do) be sure to bring your id.

Where: The PowWow Room, 74 Courtenay Place Wellington (upstairs from the Dakota Bar)
When: 31st October, 6.30/7pm
Cost: $5 Concession / $10 General, buy tickets online or at the door

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
