Acts this month

Detective Downtime

Hardy and Webb are two detectives committed to solving crime, wherever they go, even on their day off, even when there isn’t a crime! The Police Chief, forcing them to take a day off, suggests they take in some culture. Whilst at the museum, they smell a crime! And no, Webb hasn’t dropped a stinker, there’s an actual crime afoot! Luckily they will have you, a group of capable cadets able to help them solve the mystery! An improvised crime caper, suitable for ages 7+. There will be audience interaction as well as areas specified for those who would prefer to just watch the show.

Unspeakable Acts

A cinematic folly! A real movie script reinvented as an absurd, unfaithful comedy spectacle.
The improv show that starts with a real Hollywood screenplay before diverging wildly into a whole new story. The audience selects the movie you most want to see mutilated and abandoned, and the team – who may never have even heard of it – will spin the tale. Absurd, unfaithful, funny and endlessly inventive, these are the stories we’ll never see on screen.

Smash Night Social Club

Spinning your suggestions into scenes and stories, characters and creatures, myths and monsters! You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you may even find yourself questioning everything you ever knew… Only one thing’s for certain when these guys hit the stage: you ain’t in Kansas any more, punk!
