Theatre Sports National Championships

Home > Sydney >
The Theatre Sports National Championships are on for one night only this Saturday at the Enmore Theatre in Newtown.

Amazingly there are still tickets available which you can snag for $39 from this page on Ticketek. Their PR team must be on holiday.

The championships are playing host to teams from NSW, WA, Victoria, and Queensland.

I saw one of the heats for the NSW Cranston Cup, and the brave souls who took to the stage were truly talented. The best players in the nation should be quite something.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Theatre Sports it involves teams of 4 or 5 people performing a number of unscripted comedic tasks, often involving audience suggestions.

An example is Guess My Word where an improviser leaves the theatre to allow the audience to suggest a secret word. The improviser then returns to the theatre and tries to guess the word as suggested by another improviser in a scene.

It's real seat-of-the-pants stuff, requires raw comedic talent and timing, and if done well is hilarious. It goes without saying the the national champs should be quite a show.


Why? See the best of the best in Theatre Sports.
