The Totally Improvised Musical Comes To Chorley!

We’re delighted to be bringing The Totally Improvised Musical to Chorley Theatre on Friday 27th of May. Join us for a night of completely unscripted, totally unmissable songs and laughter!

It’s opening (and closing) night for two brand new musicals inspired by your suggestions. Previous shows have featured such weird and wonderful stories as a prison break where no one wanted to escape, a tale of hobbits vs greedy land developers, and a heart warming tale of tube drivers who dream of being west-end stars!

Chorley Theatre was the home of ComedySportz in the UK and we’re delighted to be bringing our brand new show to their brand new studio theatre space. If you like musicals and comedy then you’ll love The Totally Improvised Musical! Tickets are on sale now – book here.

Can’t wait that long? You can also catch our monthly shows at The Peer Hat in Manchester. For the current list of upcoming dates (with tickets links) visit our Musicals page. We’ll be adding even more dates soon!

Feeling inspired? There are still spaces available on our One Day Musical Improv Workshop at Gorse Hill Studios on Sunday 3rd April! Rachel and Felix will show you how to make up great improvised songs in this fun and friendly workshop. You don’t need to be able to sing – though some prior improv knowledge is recommended.

And if that’s hitting all the right notes for you, we’re also running a one-day Musical Improv Workshop on the 3rd April at Gorse Hill Studios. Designed for performers with experience in improv who are looking to explore their musical side., this session will also cater to experienced musical improvisers looking to expand their skills. The workshop will focus on the creation of small group and solo songs, looking at the structure of a song and methods for creating continuity and meaning within.  Join our musical director Felix Janeway and Rachel Wareing for a day of character driven songs and challenges, if a fun and supportive environment.

We have two shows that day with ComedySportz 4 Tots at 3pm and ComedySportz at 6.30pm. Anyone in fancy dress gets a free treat!

Improv Comedy at The Barking Dog

Improv Mullet returns! We’re delighted to be bringing this adults only mixed format improv show to the Barking Dog, Urmston on Thursday 21st October! Why Improv Mullet? Because it’s shortform gags and games in the first half and longform scenes and sketches in the second.

The Totally Improvised Musical comes to Manchester!

The Totally Improvised Musical is our brand new show! Every night is opening night as our team of top improvisers compose a brand new musical from your suggestions – hitting all the right notes in any order they like. If you like musicals, this is the show for you. If you like comedy, this is also the show for you!

Originally scheduled for April 2020 we’re delighted these shows can now go ahead from next month with more planned for the New Year. So whilst you’d think the delay would have given us time to just write a musical – where would the fun be in that? Our shows are unscripted and unmissable as every note, lyric and plot twist will be inspired by your suggestions!

(Hopefully we can all still fit into those fancy T-Shirts we had made before the pandemic).

Join us as we go from suggestion to sensation at The Peer Hat, Manchester on October 26th and November 30th 2021. Tickets cost just £6 and you can book tickets at the links below.
