"Performing impro is such good fun," Amy enthuses, "When a scene goes well, I feel like I'm six again putting on a weird and wonderful show in the garage starring my little brother and the dog (20 cents admission, please, Mum).
"Impro for kids seems a really natural fit. Who knows, perhaps 2030's best impro comedian will be in the audience."
ImproMafia has been making adult audiences laugh in Brisbane for over a decade. They're experts at inventing improbably imaginative plots, crazy characters and clever twists in their tales. While Gruesome Yarns promises to be child-friendly, there will be plenty in there for the adults as well.
"I adore fantastical storytelling that relishes the gory details," Amy says, "As a kid, I loved pantos and theatre visits, and nothing annoyed me more that grownups who didn't pull faces and do the voices when reading a book. We want to really throw ourselves in to whatever characters we discover during the show - dignity be damned!"
