We played our first ComedySportz Match in 2001 as part of Chorley Youth Theatre. Now we’re back at Chorley Theatre on Friday 19th November to celebrate twenty years of laughs. As part of the celebrations, original team founder Brainne Edge and Chorley player Stephen Catterall returned to Chorley Youth Theatre to teach some comedy skills to the next generation of performers.
“It was fantastic to meet the kids who were us over twenty years ago!” says Brainne, who was running the Youth Theatre in 2001. “What a great bunch full of enthusiasm and talent, I’m really hoping some will audition for us in a few years time!”
The team taught the group of young performers some of the skills of comedy improvisation as well as the games we’ve been entertaining audiences with for two decades. Brainne adds, “Improv builds confidence, communication and keeps us playful, even as we get older. These kids had such a natural talent for being in the moment and are very funny. It’s the spirit of play and imagination that has kept us going for so long.”
Want to get involved in the fun? Don’t miss our twentieth anniversary show at Chorley Theatre this Friday! Tickets are available now from the theatre website, box office or Malcolm’s Musicland.
There will also be a raffle with all proceeds going to Children in Need. Prizes will include ComedySportz merchandise, tickets and more!
