Covid Update – June 17:  The theatre is reopening at 50% capacity (27 tickets per event) from Friday June 18 – please be aware that we will be fully clearing the venue between performances, and early patrons will not be allowed into the lobby until the previous audience has been dismissed. Saturday and Sunday workshops are running, and if those run smoothly while new COVID case numbers remain favourable, we expect that our Monday-Thursday workshops will run too. 

Scholarship Opportunities

Our company's mission is to foster and showcase the best improv and comedy in Australia.

In the pursuit of our mission we refer to our core values to help us make decisions. Two of our core values are Diversity and Excellence, so we've decided to offer scholarship opportunites to applicants we believe will help us in these areas.

Diversity Scholarships Improv Sketch

Each of our Improv Level 1 - Introduction to Long Form Improvisation and Intro to Sketch Writing workshops has a space set aside for a diversity scholarship recipient.

  • provide an opportunity to study with us for students who might not otherwise be able to
  • increase the diversity of our student body
  • encourage the exchange of culture and ideas, allowing for better comedy
No prior acting, writing or comedy experience is required to apply.
