Weekly Improv Drop-In: The Improvised Star Wars Show  Thursday 23 June 2022


This week is hosted by Nick Tyler

The Improvised Star Wars Show

The Empire is very bad, and the Good Guys are mostly good, but what makes a story work in the Star Wars shows? This week we’ll be playing the same show format that’s going to be on stage at Nottingham Playhouse in just a week and a half’s time: It’s A Trap! The Improvised Star Wars Show. We’ll be playing with good guys and bad guys, and trying out the opening scenes that set us up for an epic story in a ridiculous universe. Just like the show, there’s no need to know anything about Star Wars, but as ever, the more pop culture junk you have sloshing around in your head the better! It’s a fun show and everyone can get some Jedi Force in their life! Play it before you see it…

This week’s drop-in will be preceded at 6.30 by Act III of Unspeakable Acts:

This week we will be using scene building techniques to establish firm foundations for each act. There will be side coaching throughout to discuss potential avenues to explore character development, building the narrative slowly and providing opportunities for your scene partners on and offstage. As ever, all are welcome, whether you have been before or not. Even if you don’t want to be in a future team, you are welcome to use the rehearsal as longform practice.

MissImp’s Weekly Improv Drop-In

We’ve run a weekly drop-in workshop for improvised comedy in Nottingham since 2005! Come and check it out – everyone’s welcome to join the fun.

The perfect intimate opportunity to practice some of our favourite improv games, and stretch out those improvising muscles. Each week features training in a different set of skills, exercises, scenes, or games, facilitated by various members of the Nottingham improv community.

    • 18+, and suitable for all levels of experience, with an emphasis on having a good time and improving everyone’s improvising experience.
    • Please note that Malt Cross’ elevator is BACK!, so we have wheelchair access to the lower floor where our workshop space is once more. 
    • Safety: Please do not attend if you are feeling unwell or cannot meet our safety requirements, especially if you’re experiencing any coronavirus symptoms. 
    • MissImp’s code of conduct for participants applies to this event.

Hi There!

During the coronavirus outbreak, MissImp has continued to offer entirely free online activities for our community, including commissioning an ongoing series of paid virtual drop-ins from improvisers around the world, fortnightly online Gorilla Burger shows and more.
