Impro Melbourne to Present CELEBRITY THEATRESPORTS

Impro Melbourne welcomes the comedic chemistry of some of improvisation's finest talent to the grand stage of St Kilda's National Theatre for the 27th annual Celebrity Theatresports on July 25th. The show that inspired Whose Line Is It Anyway? combines the family friendly joy and hilarity of Theatresports with the prestige and glamour of celebrity, creating a night of unpredictable and dynamic fun! We are thrilled to announce our first celebrity guest is Dean Haglund (The X-Files Lone Gunman)!

Celebrity Theatresports is a competition for the curious, the brave and the famed. Teamed with the Impro Melbourne Ensemble, celebrity guests compete in exciting improvisation games and are scored by judges. Using audience suggestions and spur of the moment wit to create moments of jaw-dropping hilarity, players craft scenes, songs and mischief. This is competition at its most mysterious - we invite audiences to join us for one night only as players compete for the coveted 'Peter Cook Cup'.

What could be out there? What might unravel on stage? Impro Melbourne welcomes the inquisitive minds of a host of talent in 2015, and is proud to announce Dean Haglund as our first celebrity guest. Dean is an improviser and stand-up comic who is best known for his role on The X-Files as Richard 'Ringo' Langley, one of The Lone Gunmen. Other credits include Bones, Home Improvement, RoboCop: Alpha Commando, Honey, I Shrunk The Kids: The TV Show, The Commish and The Lady Killers (coming soon).

2015's show is directed by our Artistic Director Patti Stiles (Veteran Improviser and Artistic Director of the International Theatresports Institute). The cast features all of the Impro Melbourne Ensemble, with more celebrity guests to be announced. Keep an eye on our social media and website for more details.

In 2015 celebrate 30 years of Theatresports in Australia - join us for one night only of celebrity competition.
