Chortle and Olivier Awards!

Showstopper! The Improvised Musical has become the first improvised show ever to be nominated for an Olivier Award (Best Entertainment and Family). It also recently won a Chortle Award for best Improv, Character or Sketch Act.

2015 was a great year for Extempore Theatre.

Showstopper! The Improvised Musical became the first longform improvised show ever to enjoy a west end run. It played at The Apollo Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, London from September 21st – November 30th 2015. The show also travelled to India, China, Canada and Singapore.

Two new shows – Rhapsodes and The Society Of Strange – were launched at the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Artistic Director Adam Meggido directed Peter Pan Goes Wrong for the Olivier Award winning Mischief Theatre (west end and UK tour).

So what’s coming up in 2016?

Showstopper! moves to a residency at the Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, London.

Dates will soon be announced for the 9th annual London 50-Hour Improvathon, the record-breaking extravaganza, which rallies together the finest improvisers from all over the world.

We will be going back to Edinburgh with another season of projects for the world’s greatest arts festival.

And look out for our Impro Dojo – a series of improvisation classes and workshops.
