Note from Maggie Cargill (from the WIT Members Facebook group)
So guys, Brenton Hodgson and I mind-melded on a brilliant idea to do some more Improv Lounge in October. We agreed that we want to get as many new WIT people performing as we can! And by new, I mean anyone who’s keen. Which means if you’re in this group you can play!
So here’s what we’re going to do: the next few Playful Tuesdays I’ll be running a Stitch Tactics* style workshop detailing some short-form games for the purpose of putting them into a show. Some of them you’ll know, some you won’t! We’ll also discuss the show format and practice some staging.
So, if you want to play come to Tuesday at Drama Christi and I’ll have a sign-up sheet so I can cast the shows. If you can’t make it to the trainings, shoot me a message.
I also seed some FOH help for those nights if anyone is keen!
If you’re debating whether or not you want to/can/are ready/ you’re nervous about performing then this is a perfect opportunity to “follow your fear” and take a chance. You’ll never get better if you don’t!
So be at Drama Christi (65 Taranaki St, building to the right of the church, entrance at the back), 6.30pm Tuesday 8th.
*Stitch Tactics is my old troupe from KC. We’re indirectly influenced by Chicago-style improv but have developed our own style. It’s sure to be a spicy new take on what you know!
