The Bristol Improv Theatre is collaborating with Michelle Graham-McMorrow (The Short And Girlie Show) to offer a development opportunity for women looking to get on stage and improvise.
Please note: We are using an inclusive definition of 'woman' and 'female' and we welcome trans
women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people. A small group will be trained for seven weeks in short-form improvised comedy (as seen in Whose Line Is It Anyway), culminating in a 30 minute performance at the BIT as part of a line up for International Women's Day (Friday 8th March).
This opportunity is perfect for women who:
– Are new to improv and want to try their hand on stage
– Have an interest in short-form improv comedy
– Looking to build confidence and develop spontaneity
– Love making people laugh
If you would like to be considered for this opportunity, please send an email to
firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 18th January detailing:
– Your previous performance experience (if any!)
– Why you would like to take part
– What makes you laugh
Rehearsals will take place at the Bristol Improv Theatre at 7pm-9pm on:
Monday 21st January
Monday 4th February
Monday 11th February
Monday 18th February
Monday 25th February
