Theatresports 2012
By Improvisor Ian Harcourt

The Improvisors latest season of Theatresports is drawing to a close with the Grand Finale in Circa One at 7:00pm on Sunday 1st July.

Over the last nine weeks, teams of improv comedians have been battling every Sunday night to win the “audience favourite” vote. The shows’ new earlier start-time of 7:00pm seems to have been a popular change, making the shows more family-friendly, more student-friendly and generally more anyone-who-has-to-get-up-early-on-Monday-morning-friendly. Each night a large share of the audience have been people who have never experienced the comedy treat that is Theatresports before. And those who have seen the show before know that because everything is made up on the spot, every night will be completely different.

During the season we’ve seen the true romance story of a couple from the audience presented in dance, a love song dedicated to Basmati rice and an inflatable plastic cow doubling as a Star Wars stormtrooper’s helmet!! This is what happens when the show is driven by audience suggestions.
The Grand Finale is always one of the most popular shows in the season, so if you are planning on attending it’s worth booking your seats – and sooner rather than later.

Tickets are available for the Theatresports Grand Finale on Sunday, 1 July - to book, call the Circa Box Office on 801-7992 or go online at www.circa.co.nz.
