Improv Drop-In Every Thursday*

Fancy getting involved? Come along to one of our fun, welcoming, drop-in sessions.

The drop-in sessions are perfect for absolute beginners who’ve never been on stage! You don’t need any experience in comedy, improv, acting, etc and you don’t have to be “funny” or “witty” or “clever”. As long as you’re willing to throw yourself in and have some fun, this is the perfect place for you!

A silly old good time!

You’ll get to do loads of improv scenes and games within a loose workshop structure, combining skills development with all sorts of fun and games. The sessions are led by experienced MissImp performers and teachers in a fun, supportive, and welcoming atmosphere. They focus on different aspects of improv but are mainly about learning, having fun, and doing some great scenes together.

Whether you’re new to improv and you simply want to have fun or a hardened improv veteran, we can’t wait to see you at the next session!

*On the second Thursday of each month the drop-in transforms into Gorilla Burger – a show open to the public. Everyone can get on stage and perform – although you’re also welcome to come along, watch and cheer. Buy your drinks upstairs and bring them down.

Every Thursday
7.30 – 9.30pm | £5 / 3 concessions
The Malt Cross (downstairs in the workshop)
16 St James’s St | Nottingham | NG1 6FG

Please let us know if you’re coming along for the first time, or if you have any questions at all send us a message. Also, do read the MissImp ground rules before coming along.
