  • Impromptunes - The Completely Improvised Musical
    Impromptunes - The Completely Improvised Musical

    CarltonTheatre | March 30 - April 23, 2017

    The lights dim, and a brand new musical opens for the first, last and only time. Impromptunes combines the mischief of improvisation with the pizzazz of musical theatre in an awe-inspiring show. The audience suggests a show title and seconds later the overture begins.

    You'll be on the edge of your seat throughout as the Impromptunes cast improvises a musical full of hijinks, harmonies and hilarity.

    It's unrehearsed. It's unpredictable. It's a whole lot of fun. It's Impromptunes.

    Impromptunes is Australia's premiere musical improv troupe, combining musical theatre trained performers (Western Australian Academy of the Performing Arts, Victorian College of the Arts) with professional improvised comedians (The Big Hoo Haa!, Impro Melbourne, Spontaneous Broadway).

    Impromptunes made their international debut last year, presenting sold out shows at Edinburgh Festival Fringe and have performed sell-out seasons at Melbourne Fringe, Perth Fringe World and Melbourne International Comedy Festival since 2013.
