Just got this from the director and uber-boss of Theatresports, Megan, announcing a whole week of performances this month. And it looks like I’ll be joining the team and performing too (woo woo!!!) … so for those of you in Cape Town (or Knysna) please come check it out!
For those of you who have miraculously remained uninitiated to TheatreSports, Cape Town’s longest running live theatre show, now’s your chance to check it out.
TheatreSports is improvised comedy. The show is a competition between two teams of professional actors who play out a series of games based on suggestions from the audience. You could see a Shakespeare set in a Laundromat or a Boyband song about tax evasion… the show is always unique, audience-friendly and hilarious. And no one from the audience is ever picked on nor forced to participate.
This year TheatreSports will be celebrating its sweet sixteenth birthday in two fantastic ways. There will be a week of TheatreSports shows starting on Monday 16 November (at The Intimate Theatre), followed by shows at The Kalk Bay Theatre from Tuesday 17 November to Saturday 21 November. It will be a great way of coming to celebrate 16 years of performance in Cape Town.
Then, without pause for breath, after the regular Monday Intimate Theatre show and Tuesday Kalk Bay Theatre show on the 23 and 24 November, TheatreSports hits Knysna for four performances that should not be missed by anyone on that part of the coast. Clear your calendar from 25 to 28 November and come and see TheatreSports back in Knysna after ten years.
Megan Furniss, TheatreSports veteran says, “I can’t believe we have been going for sixteen years. And we just get better and better. We have just finished with a new training course, our weekly performances are drawing great crowds and we even won a coveted Fleur du Cap award this year.”
