A peak behind the improv curtain

“A masterfully executed improv show not to miss.” London Post Live

THE IMPROV GAMES SHOW

Just like “Whose Line Is It Anyway”

Due to the popular TV show ‘Whose Line is it Anyway?’ this is the type of show most people think of when you mention improvisation. Its fast pasted and exciting with loads of audience interaction. There are a huge variety of games and scenes beyond those you may have seen on TV … from current affairs scenes performed with Shakespearean dialogue, to scenes performed completely backwards, and many many more.

THE IMPROV PLAY/MUSICAL

The perfect improv show for a theatre”

Shout out a title and have it turned into a whole play. The improvised narrative is an amazing show. Watch as the performers create a cast of fantastic characters and effortlessly craft a full-length comedy show.  Add a pianist and you can turn the play into a musical!

“UNFOLDING THEATRE”

Improvisation meets performance art.

“Take the pen and write on the whiteboard and see what happens.” This show is ideal for galleries and live events where people can drop-in and out of the performance.  A continuous montage of scenes and narratives usually inspired by written suggestions from the audience, but inspiration can come from a variety of sources. You can dip in for a few minutes or stay and see a whole progression of ideas.

“ART v ART”

Ideal for galleries & live events

As Sprout create a performance it is turned from something ephemeral into an actual work of art by a live illustrator.  The work can be cyclical with images inspiring performance and performance inspiring images.

“CHOOSE YOUR NIGHTMARE”

Black comedy improv.

You want zombies or ghosts? You got it. You want serial killers or devil worshippers? You got it. This is comedy horror on demand as we create a whole improvised horror play based on audience suggestions. This is a Halloween favourite for obvious reasons. 

“THE SOAP OPERA”

We create the characters, you control their destiny.

Audience suggestions are taken throughout the narrative at each cliff-hanger. (Who will Joanna have an affair with in the next scene? What is Phillip’s guilty secret? – you decide!)

“THE UNTOLD TALES”

Two long form plays.

A show with two halves – one a tale of love and one a tale of mystery. A favourite show at Halloween and Valentine’s Day.
