The Unscripted Players is the UK’s first am-dram company dedicated to improvised theatre.
The group was created to give everyone the opportunity to experience the fabulous and rapidly growing art form that is improv. They aim to provide a safe, stable and supportive environment where total newbies and old-hands alike have the chance to improvise and perform!
They host regular events, ranging from full-length improvised plays to monthly performance jams and socials. And it’s completely free to join!
The Bristol Improv Theatre has evolved from a lively cultural arts hub where anyone can not only witness live theatre, but also learn, play, and perform in a really participatory atmosphere, due to patrons’ support. Quite a few have been donating throughout the pandemic to keep the theatre going, and everybody at The Bristol Improv Theatre cannot thank them enough for the continued support.
Whilst The Bristol Improv Theatre are in the process of applying to become a charity, they want to facilitate these donations in a more permanent way going forward via the Friends Scheme.
Become a Friend of the Bristol Improv Theatre
By becoming a Friend of the Bristol Improv Theatre, the money you donate will go towards continuing to keep the theatre open and thriving, supporting the improvement of their valuable work by trying to get more people into improv who wouldn’t be able to afford to otherwise. You will help develop more spontaneous, creative and confident individuals by creation of more shows and classes.
The Friends Scheme is a philanthropic initiative for The Bristol Improv Theatre during these struggling times for the arts and theatre industry whilst returning to normal after the pandemic. As a non-profit limited company with charitable aims, this scheme would make a fantastic start for the theatre’s journey on becoming a charity along with being another step to reach more audiences and get more people into improv.
As a Friend, you will help nurture an engaging community by connecting with other improv aficionados at exclusive quarterly pre show get-togethers and get to meet more people who are passionate about improv as much as you are!
It’s fantastic to have people choose to support the theatre as Friends through this scheme. Every penny the theatre makes goes back into its operations, including the development of our community outreach programmes. We’re determined to find ways to engage more people with the transformative power of improv for connection, creativity, resilience, and fun – and the contribution of the Friends’ scheme really does make a difference.”
