  • The Big HOO HAA!

    MelbourneTheatre | June 12 - December 1, 2017

    Fast, furious and funny, The Big HOO-HAA! is Melbourne's longest-running and best-loved weekly impro comedy show. Starring a who's who of Melbourne's finest comedians, every Friday night The Big HOO-HAA! ensemble dazzles audiences with its unique brand of high-octane impro, killer punchlines and sizzling (and occasionally fizzling) one-liners. Hosted by The Butterfly Club in the heart of Melbourne's CBD, two teams, the Hearts and the Bones, battle for comedic supremacy before your very eyes, armed with only audience suggestions and a handful of props as they leave no song unsung, no joke undelivered and no pun unpunished in their mad dash for the punchline. Every Friday night at 8pm at the Butterfly Club. https://thebutterflyclub.com/show/the-big-hoo-haa

  • Improvised Tales

    North MelbourneTheatre | June 24 - July 22, 2017

    Not all stories have happy endings …

    Join us in a land of magic, love, castles and pure evil. Where villainous kings reign and you must always be careful what you wish for.
    Inspired by the original stories from the Brothers Grimm, Improvised Tales takes you back to a time when the shadows had demons, and the devil could take any shape he liked. Exploring the dark and often macabre side to fairy tales where love can lead either to despair or true happiness and even your family can’t be trusted. These tales are not for the faint-hearted and the endings are unknown… will love and faith win ?
    Join our story teller and actors and let us transport you to an improvised world of trolls and princesses, talking beasts and deep desires.
    Directed by Katherine Weaver, with a cast from the Impro Melbourne Company, accompanied by Pan Reed on keyboard.
